Centralized Accounting and Payroll/Personnel System (CAPPS)

What’s New

Federal Legislation Affecting Leave

In March the federal government passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The CARES Act amended the FFCRA by providing certain technical corrections and clarifying language. Beginning April 1, these new laws require certain employers to provide their employees with paid sick leave and expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. As public employers, state agencies and institutions of higher education are required to comply with the provisions of the FFCRA regardless of size.

The Comptroller’s office is documenting these changes and updating the statewide payroll systems, and will provide more detailed information this week. Agencies should review the federal guidelines and update your policies accordingly.

Reminder – New Online CTIA System

Effective April 6, electronic confirmation of the Confidential Treatment of Information Acknowledgement (CTIA) will be recorded in a new CTIA system. New state employees and contractors with valid state email addresses will be able to view and acknowledge the policy electronically. Signed paper CTIA forms are still acceptable. Existing records must be retained per Access Requirements for Comptroller Systems (FPP K.015). See Methods and Evidence of Acknowledgement in FPP K.015 for more information.
