The Two-Tier Employment Model: Explained
The two-tier employment model comprises two types of entities, which are work relationships and assignments. Employment terms occur in the three-tier employment model only.
When you configure the employment model for the enterprise or legal employer (when you create or update the enterprise or legal employer), you can select from three two-tier options:
Single Assignment with Contract
If you select Single Assignment, each work relationship of any type has one assignment only.
The assignment is created automatically when the work relationship is created.
If you select Single Assignment with Contract, users can include contract information in the single assignment. This approach enables those legislations that require contract information in employment records to meet their obligations without having to use a three-tier employment model.
The assignment is created automatically when the work relationship is created. Including contract information in the assignment is optional.
If you select Multiple Assignments, each work relationship of any type can include one or more assignments.
One assignment is created automatically when the work relationship is created. Additional assignments are optional and are created manually.
