Last updated on NOVEMBER 06, 2019

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Human Resources - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 Substantive Job Processing allows Additional Assignments to be Added to an Employee and can Automatically End Based on Setup and the End Date of the Assignment on the Persons Job Data record.

The Customer is trying to use Substantive Job Processing, using a Hire date in the Future. Due to this the (ERN) Employment Record Number for the Additional Assignment is not assigned.

Can Future dates be used when using Substantive Job Processing to Hire an Employee?

Steps to follow:

1. Go to Workforce Administration > Job Information > Job Data > Work Location

2. To enter a temporary assignment:

        Locate the substantive job that will be put on hold during the temporary assignment.

        Insert a new data row with the following parameters:

        Enter the effective date that the temporary assignment begins.

        Enter Temporary Assignment in the Action/Reason field.

        When user uses this value in the Action/Reason field, the system suspends the worker's substantive job. The system also transfers the substantive job data, including payroll and benefits information, to the next job record (for the temporary job) for this worker. The Reactivation/Termination process reactivates the substantive job upon termination of the temporary assignment.

        Enter the temporary assignment position number, if applicable.

    (Optional) On the Job Data − Job Information page (Workforce Administration > Job Information > Job Data > Job Information) enter the termination date for the temporary assignment in the Expected Job End Date field.

    (Optional) Select the End Job Automatically check box to end the job on the termination date.

    This action also reactivates the substantive job when user runs the Reactivation/Termination process.
