New Earnings Codes: Kansas Mentors Program (KMP / KME)

Message Text:


Governor Sebelius signed Executive Order No. 08-10 http://www.governor.ks.gov/executive/Orders/exec_order0810.htm that authorizes up to 90 minutes (1.5 hours, which includes travel time) every two weeks for mentoring through a Kansas Mentors Gold Star partner for approved full-time, classified and unclassified employees in the Executive Branch.

The earnings codes associated with the Kansas Mentors Program are:

  • KMP (Kansas Mentors Program)- Enter in .25 increments up to 1.5 hrs every pay period.
  • KME (Kansas Mentors Program–Exempt) - Enter in .25 increments up to 1.5 hrs every pay period.

NOTE: Time associated with KMP counts toward leave accrual and counts as hours worked for FLSA purposes. Time associated with KME also counts toward leave accrual.

For an updated Earnings Code list, go to the Documents page of the SHARP Customer Service website (www.da.ks.gov/sharp/documents) and click on the Earnings Code List hyperlink.

Payroll information covering this program will be posted at the Department of Administration, Division of Accounts and Reports’ Information Circular website (www.da.ks.gov/ar/infocirc) under the Payroll Circulars section.
