L and I Code File Maintenance

L and I Code File Maintenance

Application Overview

 

The L And I Code File Maintenance application allows the user to enter information connected with Labor and Industry Codes.  L and I codes are used by some states as a form of employee contributed worker's compensation.  The information entered in the application will determine how the employee and employer L and I premiums are calculated.

 

Since regulations vary from state to state, the application allows the user to enter such information as: 

 

-  if premiums are calculated on hours worked or wages earned

-  maximum limits on taxable hours/wages

-  if overtime/special pay is included in the premium calculation

 

The user may also enter G/L accounts to record employee and employer liabilities and expenses. 

 

The application provides a list function, which will print out all Labor and Industry codes on file, along with all pertinent information about them.

 

Run Instructions

 

Select L And I Code File from the pull down PR Maintenance window.  The following screen will then be displayed:
