    It's a little hard to answer your Question without you providing more information about your configuration.

    How is the "First Aid Allowance" being generated? Is it through Time Evaluation (based on criteria X and Y) or through a Payroll Infotype (such as IT0008 or IT0014)?

    How will hte system know that the employee will have been on Leave for =>5 days? From the Action or from the Absences? Do all Absences (paid and unpaid) count?

    Have you consulted regarding configuration specific to Australia?

    Hi Remi,

    Thank you so much for the reply.

    Sorry for not providing more details.

    First Aid allowance is maintained in Info type 0008 and directly processed in Payroll.

    Leave details will be updated in IT0573 - Absence Australia and got updated in IT2001 - Absences. Time evaluation will be executed first and then integrated with payroll. If employee took Leave => 5 days (includes all types of Leave) in consecutive days then First aid allowance which is processed in payroll needs to stopped. Also we are maintaining absence in hours.

    We thought of getting to know if there is any standard solution is available for this scenario as it is a Government specific rule for Australia as per the below Link.

    Chapter 51.

    Please let me know anything required and requesting for any solution for the requirement.

    Hello Sugumar,

    I'm not familiar with Payroll for Australia, but if there is no standard solution provided by SAP regarding this, you will probably have to generate an Information WT (sometimes called a "Flag" or "Dummy WT") in Time Evaluation and transfer that WT to Payroll through table ZL.

    In Payroll, you will then be able to use the value of that WT to make decisions.

    In Payroll Processing, you can use the Partial Period Parameters to identify the part of the Payroll Period where the employee was Absent, but it would not work in your situation since the Absence could have started in a PP and ended in the next.
