Temp/On-Call Change of Status

This document covers the change of status form for a temporary or on-call employee. The change of status form is used for temporary or on-call employees in the following circumstances:

  • Employee is changing from temporary to on-call, or vice versa.
  • Employee’s job title is being changed.
  • Employee’s position is transferring to a different organizational unit
  • Employee’s SSN or name has changed.
  • Temporary employee’s end date or employment percent is changing.

Selecting the Employee and the Effective Date

First you locate and select the employee and enter the effective date. When changing an employee’s end date, the effective date must be the day after the current Primary Assignment End Date. 

To select the employee

  1. From Actions, click on HR Forms: Pay & Cost Redistributions > Change an Existing Appointment/Assignment > Temporary and On-Call Staff > Start Employee Process.
  2. In the Employee Number box, enter the employee person ID (PERSID) or personnel number (PERNR), or search for the person as described below
  3. Enter the Effective Date in the box provided. As noted on the form, this is the date the change of status becomes effective.
  4. Click the Search Assignment button. A list of assignments appears, along with cost distribution information for the selected assignment.
  5. If necessary, select an assignment by clicking the box to the left of the assignment.

  4. Click the box to the left of an assignment to select it.
  5. Click the OK button.  

Selecting the Information to be Changed

Once you have selected the assignment, you then need to indicate the changes to be made by checking the appropriate boxes. Some changes are valid for only temporary OR on call employees; some are valid for both. Changes not valid for the selected assignment are grayed out and cannot be selected. The checkboxes you select control which parts of the change of status form are editable, and which business rules apply. If you select an item to change, you must change that information on the form.

Saving the Form

You can click the Save Draft button at any time to save a draft of the form to your HR Inbox.

Filling out the Form

You move through the steps in the process using buttons at the top of the screen.    

  • Click the Next button to validate the information on the screen and advance to the next step. If you receive a red system message, the error on the page must be corrected before moving onto the next step. Because options presented are based on information previously entered, you are less likely to encounter errors.
  • Click the Previous button to go back to the previous screen.
  • If you receive a yellow or green system message, click Continue to acknowledge the message and advance to the next step. 

You can also go directly to the final summary step and enter all the information on one screen. However, this bypasses the validations that occur when clicking the Next button; all validation occurs after you click the Check button and you receive all error messages in one long list. 

Data Changes Table

Data Changes table appears at the bottom of each screen. It is closed initially. To expand it and view the table, click the square to the right of the band. 

Once open, the Data Changes table shows any changes that will be made to the employee’s record as a result of submitting the form. A single change on the form may change multiple values. For example, changing a person’s job title may change related values such as Employee Subgroup or Personnel Sub Area. 

The table changes as you fill out the form. You can also refresh the table manually at any time by clicking the Refresh  button.

The first screen displays the changes selected earlier, followed by personal information. If you indicated that the name and/or Social Security Number would be changed, those fields are editable. Other fields are not editable.
