UPB -Initiating a Current Pay Adjustment (CPA) for Academic (Monthly) Employees

You can submit a Current Pay Adjustment for an Academic (Monthly) employee at the beginning of the payroll calculation to correct pay for a job change not yet applied.

You must initiate the job change correction in the Human Resources Front End (HRFE) first, then continue with a Current Pay Adjustment (CPA) in PARIS.

See the CPA Window Quick Guide for when to initiate a CPA and Payroll Schedules for deadlines.

Earnings edited or entered on the CPA will overwrite any earnings submitted on the timesheet for the selected job. The pay entered on the CPA is the only pay the employee will receive.
