Summary: Addition of Earnings Code ‘CVD’ for COVID-19 Tasks

On March 12, 2020, Governor Kelly declared an emergency in response to the growing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in Kansas.  As a result, agencies will be preparing for and responding to numerous issues, questions, and tasks related to COVID-19. 

Therefore, a new earnings code has been added to SHARP effective March 8, 2020 to administer the tracking of time worked on COVID-19 related tasks.  Agencies should also refer to the Governor’s memorandum issued March 13, 2020 on COVID-19 Operational and Workplace Guidance for instructions regarding the recording of administrative leave for other scenarios related to COVID-19.

The following new earnings code is eligible to be used starting with the pay period beginning March 8, 2020 through March 21, 2020 paid April 3, 2020.
