Issuing ROEs when changing pay period type

QUESTION: We are changing our pay period type from biweekly to semi-monthly. Do we have to issue records of employment (ROEs) to employees for this even if they have not had an interruption of earnings? Or can we wait until there is one?

ANSWER: If an employer changes its pay period type, it must issue ROEs for all employees for the employment period up to the change in pay period type even if they do not have an interruption of earnings.
