Q: Is there a certain time frame in which these documents should be sent to PAC?

A: Yes. The Human Resources Department asks that you submit all paperwork by the third day after the hire date, or 2-3 days before the HR deadline. Many people are involved in processing your paperwork, so this gives sufficient time to see it all though. Remember, you can always check our HR deadlines with the current month's payroll calendar attached.

Q: What is forfeited leave and how can it be used?

A: A maximum of 720 sick leave hours and 360 annual leave hours may be maintained in each employee's leave account. Once leave is at maximum capacity, any other hours accrued are put into a your forfeited leave account. Forfeited leave is not totally lost, however. If you exhaust all other leave due to an illness, injury, etc., your District Attorney may authorize reinstitution of forfeited leave to sick leave. When you retire, if your remaining forfeited leave AND sick leave (combined) total 960 hours or more, you may used that as credit for hours worked which will allow you to retire at an earlier date. At the end of your employment, you will be paid out for any remaining annual leave, up to 360 hours. If your sick leave combined with your forfeited leave does not total 960 hours, all will be completely forfeited.

Q: How can I use my "previous unpaid leave'?

A: Previous unpaid leave occurs when an employee has a break in service. Any sick leave that remains when an employee leaves state service reverts to previous unpaid leave. The previous unpaid leave may be reinstated into the employee's sick account when the employee returns to state service and has been at their new position for a period of two or more years. Employees may transfer up to 720 hours of previous unpaid leave. To see if you qualify to have your previous unpaid leave reinstated, feel free to contact our human resources department at 770-282-6300.

Q: Based on a monthly paycheck, how is the daily pay rate calculated?

A:You can calculate your daily pay rate by doing the following : Annual Gross Salary ÷ 2080 (annual # of scheduled work hrs) x 8 (hrs) = daily rate
Example : 40,000.00 (AGS) ÷ 2080 = 19.230770 x 8 = $153.85 (daily rate) ** The Peoplesoft system calculates using a six digit system. When coming up with the hourly rate, do not round off to nearest tenth or hundredth (example: 19.230770 to 19.23). This may result in an inaccurate amount.

Q: When updating my tax information, can I use past year's W4 forms? Is there a difference?
