Labor Distribution Adjustments is a system within Oracle Financials 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 Adjustments system is specifically designed to allow users to create and manage Labor Distribution Adjustments (LDAs).

  • LDAs are 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 LDA updates and enhancements.

You must satisfy four requirements before getting access to originate LDA transactions using the Labor Distribution Adjustments system.
