    We have employees in many states and are trying to figure out how to manage growing number of sick pay laws that are being passed in states and localities across the country.  Do you know if GP is able to calculate sick pay using multiple calculations?  One state it is 1 hour per 40 hours worked, another might be 1 hour per 30 hours worked.  There are also multiple rules for the number of hours you can earn, whether you can roll it over to the next year, etc.  Does anyone use GP to manage this or I am sure there are third party products.  What does anyone use or recommend?

    @Pam Hoyt:

    We are not in more than one state but we do have different situations (calculations). So, we set up different Accrual and Maximum Schedules. When we have a new hire we just make sure to select the appropriate schedules for that employee.

    The number of hours you can earn and whether you can roll it over to the next year could be specific based on how each employee's PTO card is setup.

    ​I recommend that you take a look at Comprehensive Leave Manager (CLM) by Integrity.  It works right inside GP and has multiple options for plans.  We use it and it works great.

    I'm not sure if GP is able to manage that... but we have employees in multiple states as well and use Integrity's Comprehensive Leave Manager for all of our time off accruals. We implemented it in 2016 and it has been wonderful!

    Hi Pam,

    Just thought to share a link to our page on CLM:

    Comprehensive Leave Manager
    If you do not have SmartList Builder, you may be interested in a SQL view to display leave liability, leave transaction and summary information. The folder contains four SQL views and a query named "Select Views.sql". Run the query first because it will tell you which views already exist.

    Happy to answer any questions you may have as well.

    Also, a special thank you to @Kathy Youngquist and @Katelyn Koch for the kind words about our product.

    Thanks so much!
