Update on Safeway PeopleSoft Issues

Since the implementation of PeopleSoft, we have had outstanding corrections required to be made to employee's sick time payments, sick time and ATO banks.  We apologize for the frustration and inconvenience that these issues have created for you and your staff.

Over the last several months significant work has been done to recreate the correct accruals, payments and banks.  The correction process is comprised of multiple steps due to the complexity of our sick/ATO programs and the period of time that we are correcting.  Following are the steps and timelines for these corrections.  The adjustments include all weeks retroactive to the implementation of PeopleSoft - July 25, 2009.

Sick Time Program

The following steps apply to employees who have not been on WI, WCB, or other leave. These employees can expect the same information at a later date.

Step 1 - May 28, 2010- Correcting Sick Time Accruals

Adjustments to sick time accruals will be reflected on paycheques dated May 28, 2010 for those employees whose balances had been incorrect.

Employees whose balances have been adjusted will receive a letter in Saturday's mailbag.  A detailed weekly breakdown of hours that had been accrued and the corrected hours will be attached.

Step 2 - June 3, 2010 - Correcting Sick Time Payments

Missed payments for sick time taken will be paid on paycheques dated June 3, 2010. 

On May 29th, employees will receive a letter in advance of payment, indicating the corrections for sick time requests.  A detailed breakdown will be attached. 

Step 3 - June 10, 2010 - Correcting the Annual Sick Time Payout

Payment adjustments for the Annual Sick time payout will be on paycheques dated June 10, 2010.

These employees will receive a letter at the time of payment showing the original payment and the correction.

ATO Program

Step 1 - May 28, 2010- Correcting ATO Accruals

Adjustments to ATO accruals will be reflected on paycheques dated May 28, for those employees whose balances had been incorrect.

Employees whose balances have been adjusted will receive a letter in the May 31st mailbag.  A detailed weekly breakdown of hours that had been accrued and the corrected hours will be attached.

Your HR Advisors will continue to be the appropriate contacts for further questions or concerns. 

Thank you for your patience and once again, please accept our apologies.
