Introduction

Labor Distribution is a module within the Oracle Financials system that allows authorized users to distribute payroll earnings, which are paid by the PeopleSoft Payroll system, to the appropriate charge accounts (PTAs). For more information, refer to Labor Schedules and Pay Allocations and Labor Distribution Adjustments (LDAs).

The Labor Distribution system is specifically designed to allow users to create, review and edit Labor Schedules or create and manage LDAs.
There are two levels of access to the Labor Distribution module that determine the types of transactions a user can perform.

  • Labor Schedules 
    • Used to define how payroll earnings are distributed for a given employee’s assignment(s), identifying what percentage of the employee’s pay should be charged to each PTA. 
    • Labor Schedules are not routed for approval. When a Labor Schedule is created, an email notification is sent to the individual with Labor Distribution approval authority over the Task Owning Org for the affected PTA.
  • Labor Distribution Adjustments 
    • Used when payroll earnings post to an incorrect PTA or to an Organization Suspense Account. A correcting entry is made to move the payroll charges to an appropriate PTA. 
    • LDAs require approval based on the PTA charged. Approvers must have Labor Distribution approval authority granted in the Authority Manager application over the Task Owning Org of the PTA being charged.

Visit the Newsroom for recent announcements and subscribe to receive future Labor Schedules and LDA updates and enhancements.

You must satisfy four requirements before getting access to the Labor Distribution module to originate Labor Schedule or LDA transactions.
