Basic Install Guide Document Revision Notes & History

Revision 0.0 was the revision used for the webinar. 



Revision 1.0 issued 3/26/20. Changes are:

My new understanding of the law (not lawyers, etc etc):


  1. The effective date is now officially April 1st. All leave taken on or after that date will be subject to the new law. Thus, the first time your employees will see this on their paychecks will be the following week.

  2. I mistakenly said that both Sick leave and Family leave would not be subject to Medicare tax. Actually, it is subject to Medicare tax, which then increases the tax credit.

  3. Both the COVID-19 Caretaker and the COVID-19 Family Leave can be paid 2/3rds of minimum wage per new DOL guidelines.

  4. Wages paid above the daily limit are subject to Employer FICA-Social Security. Thus, the COVID-19 Caretaker and the COVID-19 Family Leave should be limited to the daily cap of 200/day and not paid the employee's full rate of pay.

Changes to the intended setup in Vista & PDF:


  1. I've added a "Limitations" section to the last page of the PDF, and the workarounds to overcome them

  2. The two Earning Codes COVID-19 Caretaker and COVID-19 Family Leave now are set up to use .666667 

  3. Modified the Basis codes on all Earnings Codes to show only removing FICA-SS liability code (leaving FICA-Medicare)

  4. Added a step to show Accrual/Usage information on the PR Leave Code setups

  5. Added a step to allow for part-time workers in PR Leave Code setups

  6. Added a step to show setting up the PR Liability Type and the PR Department

  7. Other minor changes to the screenshots & naming conventions were made


Revision 1.1 issued 3/30/20 Changes are:

My new understanding of the law (not lawyers, etc etc):

  1. You are not required to pay more than the caps (511/day or 200/day) even when the 2/3rds pay would be greater

  2. Rehired employees that were laid off after March 1st, 2020 are eligible for all benefits

  3. The IRS will waive "failure to deposit" penalties for companies that anticipate a credit under the new law

Changes to the PDF (rev 1.1) include:

  1. Leave codes Leave Balance Warning levels are now set to “Not Allowed”

  2. Additional description has been added for each screenshot to call out items of note

  3. Each step has been written out
