GP payroll issues, too many entries for one person?

GP payroll issues, too many entries for one person?

GP payroll issues, too many entries for one person?

We are using GP for payroll and running into some weird issues. We are a fire department, so our hours change from pay period to pay period (our week is basically 6 days instead of 7). We average our hours over 24 pay periods and it comes out to 109.67 hours of regular pay. So we limit the total hours a person can get paid for per-period to that. We import our pay records from Telestaff as separate line items. So a person who works six 24 hour shifts in a period will have 6 entries of 24 hours. We have set up GP to limit the total hours to 109.67. It processes the first 5 entries (which totals 120 hours and hits the 109.67 limit) and it is fine. But when it hits the 6th entry it adds the last 24 on for a total of 133.67. Any idea why it would only apply our HOURS limit when it first hits that limit and not after? We are looking at sub-totaling all our pay codes before importing batches into GP but would like to solve the issue in GP if possible.

I am an IT person, not a payroll person so many of the business concepts of payroll systems are foreign to me.
