UPB - Initiating a Prior Underpayment Adjustment (PUA) for Illinois COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave – Bi-weekly Hourly Employee

In some cases, qualified employees may be due COVID-19 administrative leave pay for eligible pay periods before and including May 11, 2023.

Fully vaccinated employees who miss work due to COVID-19 may be eligible for COVID-19 administrative leave at full pay.

See COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave or contact your Human Resources office for more information.

If time reporting is not correct so the employee will receive inaccurate pay, and it’s after the CPA window but before payday, complete the following steps:

  1. Submit a Pay Stop in the Adjustment Notification Application (ANA) to cancel the payment.
  2. Submit a Leave Balance Adjustment in ANA to correct leave accruals from the original pay event.
  3. Initiate a PUA using the CO5 – IL COVID19 Paid Admin Leave earn code to get the employee the correct pay. See instructions below.
    NOTE: If pay amount is correct but Illinois paid COVID-19 administrative leave needs to be reported, do not submit a Pay Stop and PUA. Adjust the leave balance with a Leave Balance Adjustment in ANA. View the Adjustment Notification Application (ANA) Job Aids for instructions.
