17 Adding Employee Records Using Employee Quick Hire

This chapter contains the following topics:

17.1 Understanding Employee Quick Hire

You can use Employee Quick Hire (P060116Q) to add multiple employee records when you hire groups of individuals that have common job information. Using Employee Quick Hire reduces typing errors and data entry time. You can define the common job information as default information that the system supplies for each employee record that you add. You must also set the processing options to define certain default information and processes related to Employee Quick Hire.

Employee Quick Hire offers a robust capability to track various types of user-defined information. Thirty category code fields are available for tracking address book codes that can be assigned to addresses in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book system. Twenty category codes are available for tracking JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Payroll system issues. Ten category codes are available that can be used to specify employee eligibility for participation in various user-defined plans or activities.

17.2 Understanding New Employee Information Tasks

When you hire a new employee into an organization, you need to perform many tasks to prepare for the new employee and to ensure that any preliminary employment activities are completed. These tasks might vary depending on the employee's location and job duties. For example, an administrative assistant might need to have a telephone, computer, network sign-on, ID badge, parking sticker, and building key to start working. A hospital nurse might need to have an ID badge, parking sticker, and locker assignment, and to have completed a blood test and attended safety orientation prior to starting work. Most new employee setup tasks require management approval, and these approvals might have been accomplished by routing a paper approval form.

The new hire employee setup program automates and streamlines the initiation of these tasks by sending E-mail messages through workflow to the individuals responsible for completing these tasks.

When you add employee records using Employee Quick Hire (P060116Q), you can set an Employee Quick Hire processing option to specify whether the new employee information updates the Employee Master Information (F060116), Address Book Master (F0101), Requisition Activity (F08105), and Applicant Master (F08401) tables as you complete the process. Or you can set the processing option to store the new employee information in the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table (F060116Z). Storing the information in this table allows you to review and revise the information before running the Process Pending Employees report (R060116P) to update the other tables.

If the Employee Quick Hire processing option is set to update the F060116Z table, you must complete one or more of these tasks after you add the employee records:

  • Run the Process Pending Employees report.

  • Revise new employee records.

  • Purge pending employee information.

The Process Pending Employees report updates the F060116 and F0101 tables after you review and revise the new employee records.

You can add, change, or delete the new employee records from the F060116Z table. Revising new employee records is mandatory if you find errors in the R060116P report. You must correct the errors and rerun the report to update the Employee Master and Address Book Master tables with the new employee information.

After you update the F060116 and F0101 tables with batches of new employee records, you may need to purge the information from the F060116Z table to free up space in the table. Purging the table deletes the pending employee records so that you can continue to add new employee records. You can run this process if you are experiencing performance problems with Employee Quick Hire or if you want to avoid scrolling through many processed employee records to view the records that you want to find.

17.3 Understanding the Relationship Between Quick Hire and New Hire Employee Setup

The Employee Quick Hire program (P060116Q) integrates with the Employee Setup Workbench program (P08710) by automatically generating the setup record and initiating a workflow process. For the two programs to integrate, you must set the processing options appropriately on Employee Quick Hire. These steps are performed when you integrate the Employee Quick Hire program with the Employee Setup Workbench program to initiate the new hire setup workflow process:

  1. When an employee record is added to the Employee Master Information table (F060116) through Employee Quick Hire, the system automatically creates the new Hire Employee setup record.

  2. The system automatically sends an E-mail message to the employee's supervisor, requesting the supervisor to identify the setup tasks necessary for the employee.

    The system determines which supervisor to E-mail based on the entry in the Supervisor field in the Employee Quick Hire program. If the new hire option is activated the supervisor field is required.

  3. Using Manager Self-Service, the new employee's manager uses the Employee Setup Workbench program to enter the setup tasks that are necessary for the employee.

    The setup tasks can also be supplied automatically based on the employee's job type. In Quick Hire, job type is required when the new hire option is activated.

  4. When the tasks are identified for the new employee and the employee setup record is approved, the system initiates the new hire setup workflow process, which send an E-mail message to the individuals in your organization who are responsible for completing the necessary tasks.

    For example, if the manager indicates that the new employee needs a network signon, security badge, and building key, the workflow process sends E-mail to the IT Manager, Security Manager, and Facilities Manager, respectively.

You can customize the new hire setup Workflow process to meet the needs of your organization. Processing options for the Employee Setup Workbench program enable you to easily customize the process. For example, your organization might choose to require approval at the process level or at the task level. Or, you might choose to escalate certain tasks if the designated individuals do not complete the tasks in an appropriate time frame.

17.4 Setting Up Default Information for Employee Records

This section provides an overview of default information setup for employee records and discusses how to set up default information for employee records.

17.4.1 Understanding Default Information Setup for Employee Records

Before you add employee records for individuals with similar job information, you set up the job information as default information to reduce data entry time. Then when you add employee records, Employee Quick Hire supplies the default information. For example, if you are hiring 50 production employees for the same business unit who have the same supervisor, you set up the Job Type, Business Unit, and Supervisor fields as default information.

You can change the default information for each group of employees for whom you are going to enter records.

17.4.2 Form Used to Set Up Default Information for Employee Records

Form Name FormID Navigation Usage
Pending Employee Defaults W060116QB Employee Quick Hire (G05BE11), Employee Quick Hire

Select Defaults from the Form menu on the Employee Quick Hire form.

Set up default information for employee records.

17.4.3 Setting Up Default Information for Employee Records

Access the Pending Employee Defaults form.

Security Business Unit

Enter an alphanumeric code that identifies a separate entity within a business for which you want to track costs. For example, a business unit might be a warehouse location, job, project, work center, branch, or plant.

You can assign a business unit to a document, entity, or person for purposes of responsibility reporting. For example, the system provides reports of open accounts payable and accounts receivable by business unit to track equipment by responsible department.

Business unit security might prevent you from viewing information about business units for which you have no authority.

Home Company

Enter the company number where the employee records generally reside.

Date Pay Starts

Enter the date that an employee may begin participating in the company's benefit plans or may be included in payroll processing.

You can also use this field to provide a beginning date for seasonal employees or for employees who work only part of the year (such as a teacher who works only nine months of the year).

Date Started

Enter the first day the employee started working at your company. If you do not enter a date, the system uses the value in the Original Hire Date field.

Date of Original Employment

Enter the date on which the employee was originally hired by the company. If the employee was terminated and subsequently rehired, the data in the Date Started (DST) field represents the new start date.

Supervisor

Enter the address book number of the supervisor.

Check Route Code

Enter a code from UDC 07/CR that specifies the check routing or mail-stop code. Use this code to sequence the printing of payroll checks to facilitate their handling and delivery.

Locality

Enter a code from UDC 07/SL that defines the different salary localities within an organization. For example, you can compare salaries for employees on the East Coast with employees in the Midwest.

Participation Date

Enter the date the employee began participating in the company deferred income or stock option plan. This date must be later than the date in the Date Started field.

Selecting the option next to each field that you completed and clicking OK activates the field and allows the system to recognize the field as a default value.

If you activate a blank field, the system overwrites the field for each record that is entered in the Employee Quick Hire form.

17.5 Adding Employee Records for Applicants, Rehires, and New Hires

This section provides an overview of employee record addition for applicants, rehires, and new hires, lists prerequisites, and discusses how to:

  • Set processing options for Employee Quick Hire.

  • Add employee records for applicants.

  • Add employee records for rehires.

  • Add employee records for new hires.

17.5.1 Understanding Employee Record Addition for Applicants, Rehires, and New Hires

Add employee records after you set up default information for employee records.

After you offer employment to individuals who have common job information, you can use Employee Quick Hire (P060116Q) to add multiple employee records to the Employee Master Information table (F060116) with minimal data entry. You can add employee records for applicants, rehires, and new hires.

To add employee records for applicants, you select the applicants from the Applicant Master table (F08401). Employee Quick Hire automatically copies the applicant's information to the Employee Quick Hire form.

You can add employee records for rehires or groups of terminated employees. When you select the record in Employee Quick Hire, the system searches the individual's information in the Employee Master Information table for a termination date with the associated Tax ID, Employee Number, or Alternate Number. When the system finds the search criteria it copies the information from the record to the Employee Quick Hire form.

The system also searches for a duplicate employee number. This process prevents the system from duplicating employees and employee numbers in the database.

To add employee records for new hires, you enter employee information in the required fields on the Employee Quick Hire form. The default information and processing options that you already defined minimize the number of fields that you need to enter. Also, if the processing options are set appropriately, a new hire record is created automatically in the Employee Setup Workbench program (P08710) for self-service.

These scenarios are examples of situations in which you might use Employee Quick Hire:

  • Your company has acquired another company and you need to enter the newly acquired employees into JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. Using Employee Quick Hire, you can enter the new employees in groups based on their supervisor. You might decide to specify the start date, supervisor, business unit, home company, and locality as default information.

  • Your company uses seasonal employees and rehires many of the same employees each year. Using Employee Quick Hire, you can select the employees that are eligible for rehire from the terminated employee database and activate their employee records. In addition, you might choose to specify the pay start date and the supervisor as default information.

When you add employee records with Employee Quick Hire, you can set an Employee Quick Hire processing option to specify whether the new employee information updates the Employee Master Information, Address Book Master (F0101), Requisition Activity (F08105), and Applicant Master (F08401) tables as you complete the process. Or you can set the processing option to store the new employee information in the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table (F060116Z). Storing the information in this table allows you to review and revise the employee records before running the Process Pending Employees program (R060116P) to update the tables.

If you set the processing option to directly update the Employee Master Information and other tables, the system also updates the HR History table (F08042). If you set the processing option to use the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table, the system does not update the HR History table until you run the Process Pending Employees program.

You can also set a processing option to activate the new hire process. This process automatically updates the Address Book table and the Employee Setup Master table (F08710).

You can set processing options to automatically supply various types of information that will reduce the time required to use the Employee Quick Hire process. For example, you can set a processing option so that the system supplies all the job information related to a specific job type when you enter the job type on Employee Quick Hire.

You can also set an Employee Quick Hire processing option so that the system copies the applicant's supplemental data to the new employee record. If you do this, you also need to set the Transfer Supplemental Data processing option in the XJDE0001 version of the Applicant Entry program (P08401).

17.5.2 Prerequisites

Before you complete the tasks in this section:

  • Set up default information for every new group of individuals that you hire with similar job information.

    See Setting Up Default Information for Employee Records

  • If you need to initiate the employee setup process after you add employee records, set the processing option for Employee Quick Hire on the Action tab to activate the new hire process.

  • If you want the system to automatically supply a range of information for job type, job category codes, business unit, or supplemental data, set the applicable processing options for Employee Quick Hire on the Defaults and Versions tabs.

17.5.3 Forms Used to Add Employee Records for Applicants, Rehires, and New Hires

Form Name FormID Navigation Usage
Employee Quick Hire W060116QA Employee Quick Hire (G05BE11), Employee Quick Hire Select records.

Add employee records for new hires

Work With Applicants W08401B Select Applicant from the Form menu on the Employee Quick Hire form. Add employee records for applicants.
Work With Employee Information W0801A Select Rehire from the Form menu on the Employee Quick Hire form. Add employee records for rehires.

17.5.4 Setting Processing Options for Employee Quick Hire (P060116Q)

Processing options enable you to specify the default processing for programs and reports.

17.5.4.1 Defaults

These processing options specify the default values that are applied during employee quick hire.

1. Security Business Unit

Specify whether the system automatically supplies the security business unit from the Address Book Master table (F0101). Values are:

0 or blank: Do not supply (default).

1: Supply.

If you have completed the Security Business Unit field on the Pending Employee Defaults form (W060116QB), and this processing option is set to 1, the system uses the value from the Pending Employee Defaults form when you add an employee record.

If you enter 0, you must manually enter the security business unit when you add an employee record.

2. Tax Areas

Specify whether the Residence Tax Area and Work Tax Area fields are required when you add or change an employee record. The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Payroll system uses the tax area fields to calculate payroll taxes for employees. Values are:

1: Not required. Enter this value only if you are not using the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Payroll system to process payroll for employees.

0: Required. Enter this value if you are using the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Payroll system. Blank means the same as 0.

3. Job information

Specify whether the system automatically supplies the Employee Quick Hire form (W060116QA) with certain job information when you complete the Job Type field. The system retrieves information in these job information fields from the Job Information table (F08001): Pay Type, Pay Frequency, WCI Code (Workers Comp Insurance Code), SC (Sub Class-Workers Comp), Benefit Group, and Union Code. Values are:

1: Supply.

0: Do not supply.

4. Job Category Codes

Specify whether the system automatically supplies values for job category codes. Values are:

1: Supply.

0: Do not supply.

5. Emergency Contact Type

Specify the UDC for a contact type in the Address Book Who's Who table (F0111). The system uses the contact name and phone number that you enter on the Quick Hire form (W060116QA) to update the Employee Master and Address Book tables with the type of contact you specify. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses E (emergency contact) as the default.

6. Business Unit/Job ID Cross Reference

Specify whether the system automatically supplies values for the business unit/job ID information for the new employee. Values are:

1: Use default business unit/job ID information.

0: Do not use default business unit/job ID information.

7. Home Phone Number Type

Specify the UDC for a home phone type in the Contact Phone table (F0115). The system uses the phone number that you enter on the Quick Hire form (W060116QA) to update the Employee Master and Address Book tables with the type of home phone number you specified with the code.

8. Work Phone Number Type

Specify the UDC for a work phone type in the Contact Phone table (F0115). The system uses the phone number that you enter on the Quick Hire form (W060116QA) to updates the Employee Master and Address Book tables with the type of work phone number you specified with the code.

9. Change Reason for New Hire

Specify the UDC for the Change Reason code that the system uses as a default value when you enter a new hire into the Quick Hire grid directly.

10. Change Reason Rehire

Specify the UDC for the Change Reason code that the system uses as a default value when you add former employees to the Quick Hire grid by taking the Rehire form exit.

11. Change Reason for Applicant Hire

Specify the UDC for the Change Reason code that the system uses as a default value for existing applicants that you add to the Quick Hire grid by taking the Applicant form exit.

17.5.4.2 Versions

These processing options specify the versions that are used during employee quick hire.

1. Applicant Information Version

Specify the version of the Applicant Entry program (P08401) that the system should use for transferring applicant information. If the applicant records that you are adding include supplemental data, you can specify a program version that the system uses to transfer the supplemental data along with the applicant information to the new employee records. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses the default version, ZJDE0001, which does not transfer supplemental data.

Note:

For the system to transfer an applicant's supplemental data, you must also set a processing option to transfer supplemental data in the processing options for the Applicant Entry program (P08401).
2. Address Book MBF Version (address book master business function version)

Specify the version of the Address Book Master Business Function (MBF) that the system uses. If you are using interoperability transactions, you might want to specify a version that updates the Address Book table (F0101). If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses the default version, ZJDE0001.

Note:

If you specify an Address Book MBF version, you must also set a processing option to indicate the interoperability outbound transaction in the processing options for the Address Book Master Business Function (P0100041).
3. Address Book Search Form Version

Specify the version to use for the Address Book Search form. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses the default version, ZJDE0001.

17.5.4.3 Action

These processing options specify whether to update the master files and whether to activate the new hire process during employee quick hire.

1. Update Master Files (Release 9.2 Update)

Specify the tables that the system updates when you use Employee Quick Hire to add employee records. When you enter 0 (Blank), the system updates only the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table (F060116Z). When you enter 1, the system updates the following tables:

  • Employee Master Information (F060116)

  • Requisition Activity (F08105)

  • Applicant Master (F08401)

  • Address Book (F0101)

  • HR History (F08042)

Values are:

0: Update only the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table.

1: Update all of the linked tables.

If you set the processing option to 0, you can review and revise the employee information before the system updates the tables. After you review and revise information, you need to run the Process Pending Employees program (R060116P) to update the tables.

2. New Hire

Specify whether to activate the new hire process. Values are:

1: Activate.

0: Do not activate.

When the new hire process is activated (the processing option is set to 1), these fields are required:

  • Alpha Name

  • Supervisor

  • Start Date (Effective Date)

  • Job Type and Step

In addition, the system:

  • Adds a record to the Address Book table (F0101) for each record that is added to the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction table (F060116Z).

    The address book records are added with a search type of N.

  • Adds a record to the Employee Setup Master table (F08710) for each record that is added to the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction table (F060116Z).

  • Uses workflow to notify the supervisor with an E-mail.

3. Address Book Search

Specify whether the Address Book search functionality should be activated. Values are:

0: Do not display the personal information of the employee.

If you set the processing option to 1, the values of the following fields are displayed:

  • Home Address

  • Salary/Hourly Rate

  • Phone Number

  • SSN

17.5.5 Adding Employee Records for Applicants

Access the Work With Applicants form.

When you use Employee Quick Hire to add employee records for applicants, the system copies applicant information from the Applicant Master table (F08401) and Address Book Master table (F0101) to the Employee Quick Hire form. The system also supplies values from the Pending Employee Defaults form.

If the processing options for the Employee Quick Hire program (P060116Q) are set to update the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table (F060116Z), review the employee information and, if correct, proceed to the task for working with new employee information to update the Employee Master Information (F060116), Applicant Master, Address Book Master, and Requisition Activity (F08105) tables.

If you use the GeoCoder, the system uses the employee address information to determine the GeoCode for the Tax Area (Residence) field, and uses the GeoCode from the employee's home business unit to determine the GeoCode for the Tax Area (Work) field. The system automatically populates these fields if there is only one possible GeoCode available for the field. If there is more than one possible GeoCode, you can use the GeoCoder to interactively assign tax area information or use the batch GeoCoder.

See Understanding Tax Area Information Assignment Using the GeoCoder

17.5.6 Adding Employee Records for Rehires

Access the Work With Employee Information form.

17.5.7 Adding Employee Records for New Hires

Access the Employee Quick Hire form.

Note:

On the Employee Quick Hire form, if the New Hire processing option is set to enable the Employee Setup Workbench program (P08710), complete the Employee Number, Supervisor, Date Started, Job Type, and Job Step fields.

If the New Hire processing option is not set to enable the Employee Setup Workbench program, complete the required (gray) fields that are not filled by default values.

Employee Number

Enter a number that identifies an entry in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book system, such as employee, applicant, participant, customer, supplier, tenant, or location.

Supervisor

Enter the address book number of the supervisor.

Date Started

Enter a future date when all changes will take effect or the date when the changes went into effect. If you do not enter a date in this field, the system uses the current date as the effective date.

Job Typ (job type)

Enter a code from UDC 07/G that defines the jobs within your organization. You can associate pay and benefit information with a job type and apply that information to the employees who are linked to that job type.

Alpha Name

Enter the text that names or describes an address. This 40-character alphabetic field appears on a number of forms and reports. You can enter dashes, commas, and other special characters, but the system cannot search on them when you use this field to search for a name.

Employee Tax ID

Enter a number that indicates the tax ID. In the United States, the tax ID is the social security number. In Canada, it is the social insurance number. If you add employee information for a non-US or non-Canadian company, you can leave this field blank. However, if the international code is set to Y and the default company is non-Canadian and non-United States, you can enter a 16-character number for the tax ID.

The system does not permit duplicate tax ID numbers. Also, the number cannot include dashes. For example, if a social security number of 123-45-6789 is used, the number should be entered as 123456789.

Pay Freq (pay frequency)

Enter a code from UDC 07/PF that indicates how often an employee is paid. Values are:

B: Biweekly

W: Weekly

S: Semimonthly

M: Monthly

A: Annually

C: European Annualized

The system uses the value in the Description-2 field from the UDC to calculate the amount per pay period for a salaried employee.

Pay Cl (pay class)

Enter a code that specifies how an employee is paid. Values are:

H: Hourly

S: Salaried

P: Piecework

Annual Salary

Enter the amount that an employee is paid in one year, assuming that the employee is paid every pay period of the year.

Depending on how the value that is entered in the Salary Display (SALD) field in the HR History Constants table (F08040), this field displays:

  • Annual salary.

    For salaried employees who are not linked with a contract calendar, the user enters the amount or the system retrieves the amount from the Pay Grade/Salary Range Table (F082001). For employees who are linked with a contract calendar, the system calculates this amount using this formula: [(current salary − salary paid before change) ÷ number of periods to pay] × pay frequency.

  • Effective salary.

    For employees whose jobs are linked with a contract calendar, the system recalculates the effective salary when you enter a mid-calendar salary adjustment. After you enter a mid-calendar adjustment, the effective salary equals the salary that is paid to the employee from the time of the adjustment through the end of the contract. The system calculates this amount using this formula: (annual salary ÷ pay frequency) × periods to pay.

Hourly Rate

Enter the employee's hourly rate, which is retrieved during time entry. If you enter a rate in this field on any other form, that rate can override the value in the Employee Master table.

In the Employee Master table, this number is the employee's base hourly rate.

In the Union Rates table, it is the straight time rate.

Note:

If you change the number of the data display decimal digits for this field, you must also change the Rate - Base Hourly (BHRT) and Rate - Hourly (SHRT) fields so that they have exactly the same number of data display decimal digits.
Security Business Unit

Enter an alphanumeric code that identifies a separate entity within a business for which you want to track costs. For example, a business unit might be a warehouse location, job, project, work center, branch, or plant.

You can assign a business unit to a document, entity, or person for purposes of responsibility reporting. For example, the system provides reports of open accounts payable and accounts receivable by business unit to track equipment by responsible department.

Business unit security might prevent you from viewing information about business units for which you have no authority.

Co (company)

Enter the company number where the employee records generally reside.

Country of Employment

Enter a value from UDC 00/CN that indicates the country in which the employee resides.

EEO Job (equal employment opportunity job)

Enter a code from UDC 07/J that specifies classifications established by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Canadian Employment Equity Occupational Group (EEOG) for use in reporting levels of minority employment. Do not change any of the codes provided by the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. You can add codes if needed.

Ethnic Code

Enter a code from UDC 07/M that designates minority classifications according to U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Canadian Employment Equity Occupational Group (EEOG) standards. The predefined codes are hardcoded. The system uses these codes to generate EEO reports and to compile Canadian Employment Equity information. Do not change these predefined codes. You can add codes, if necessary.

Gender

Enter a value that specifies the employee's gender. Values are:

M: Male

F: Female

Res. Tax Area (residence tax area)

Enter a code that identifies both the geographical location and the tax authorities for the employee's residence. Authorities include employee and employer statutory requirements. This code is synonymous with GeoCode. Refer to Vertex System's Master GeoCode File for values for your locations.

Work Tax Area

Enter a code that identifies a geographical location and the tax authorities for an employee work site, including employee and employer statutory requirements. In the Vertex payroll tax calculation software, the tax area code is synonymous with GeoCode. To determine the values for your location, refer to the documentation for the tax calculation software that you are using.

Original Hire Date

Enter the date on which the employee was originally hired by the company. If the employee was terminated and subsequently rehired, the new start date will be represented by the date in the Date Started (DST) field.

Date Started

Enter a future date when all changes will take effect or the date when the changes went into effect. If you do not enter a date in this field, the system uses the current date as the effective date.

Date Pay Starts

Enter the date that an employee may begin participating in the company's benefit plans or may be included in payroll processing.

You can also use this field to provide a beginning date for seasonal employees or for employees who work only part of the year (such as a teacher who works only nine months of the year).

S h (shift)

Enter a code from UDC 00/SH that identifies daily work shifts.

In payroll systems, you can use a shift code to add a percentage or amount to the hourly rate on a timecard.

For payroll and time entry: If an employee always works a shift for which a shift rate differential is applicable, enter that shift code on the employee's master record. When you enter the shift on the employee's master record, you do not need to enter the code on the timecard when you enter time. If an employee occasionally works a different shift, you enter the shift code on each applicable timecard to override the default value.

Loc (location)

Enter a code from UDC 07/SL that specifies the employee's salary locality within an organization. For example, you can compare salaries for employees on the East Coast with employees in the Midwest.

Emp St (employee status)

Enter a code from UDC 07/ES that specifies an employee's status within the company. You can change the default codes or set up new codes to meet the needs of your company. Sample values include:

Blank: Full-time regular.

1: Full-time temporary

2: Part-time temporary

3: Part-time regular

4: Seasonal

5: Casual

R C (recharge)

Enter a code that identifies whether the employee is to be handled through the Recharge processing option for the Payroll Journal Entry program. Values are:

1: Payroll Processing Only

2: Payroll and Recharge Processing

3: Recharge Processing Only

After a timecard has been added, you cannot change its record type.

Part. Date (participation date)

Enter the date the employee began participating in the company deferred income or stock option plan. This date must be later than the date in the Date Started field.

B S (benefit status)

Enter a code from UDC 06/EA that specifies the employee's status, such as new hire or rehire. The system uses this value as it searches and tests for benefits eligibility. An * indicates that the guidelines refer to all employee statuses that are not otherwise specified.

Do not change the codes that are hard-coded, such as A (Active) and X (Terminated). These codes are required in the system.

Pay Grade

Enter a code that designates a category for grouping employees according to pay ranges. For each pay grade, you enter a pay range that includes a minimum, a midpoint, and a maximum pay rate. The system uses these pay ranges to calculate compa-ratios for the employees that you assign to pay grades. After you enter a pay grade for an employee, the system displays either an error or a warning message if you enter a rate for the employee that is not within the pay range for the employee's pay grade.

To set up pay grades, use the Pay Grades by Class program (P082001).

If you have set up the system to use rates in the Pay Grade Step table as the default pay rates for employees, changing an employee's pay grade step causes the system to automatically update these fields:

  • Salary

  • Hourly Rate

  • Hours per day

  • Hours per year

  • Days per year

Grade Step

Enter a code that identifies a pay grade and pay step. You can use this code to determine an employee's pay rate.

If you have set up the system to use rates in the Pay Grade Step table as the default pay rates for employees, changing an employee's pay grade step causes the system to automatically update:

  • Salary

  • Hourly Rate

  • Hours per day

  • Hours per year

  • Days per year

Enter the code used to indicate whether an employee's pay status is active or inactive. Codes for active pay status employees are numeric, and codes for inactive pay status employees are alphabetic. The system omits all employees with alphabetic pay status codes from the payroll run.

Also refer to these data items:

EST: Employment Status

TRS: Change Reason

R S (state of residence)

Enter a value that identifies out-of-state employees for whom an employer must withhold tax for the state of residence. Values are:

N (Default): The system uses the employee residence state to calculate taxes.

Because the work state has a reciprocal agreement with the employee state of residence, the system uses the employee residence state from the Employee Master Information table (F060116).

W: The system uses only the work state to calculate taxes.

T S

Enter a value that specifies the source for obtaining the tax area code for the employee's work location.

N: Use time entry, job master, employee labor rules or employee master to determine Tax Area.

When blank the system assumes N.

SUI/SDI Rpt

Enter a value that specifies the work tax area that is used for SUI reporting.

You can specify that the system use either the resident state or the work state, regardless of where the employee worked. FUI is calculated in the same state where SUI is calculated. Weeks Worked are the number of weeks the employee worked in the taxed state. Values are:

N: Use the work tax area in the time entry record to determine SUI. This is the default value.

R: Always use residence tax area from Employee Master table even if the time entry record is different.

W: Always use work tax area from Employee Master table even if the time entry record is different.

T M (tax method)

Enter a code from UDC 07/TM that specifies the tax method that the Vertex payroll-tax calculation system uses to calculate certain taxes.

This code can also determine the form that the employee receives for year-end tax reporting. For example, when you enter C, a contract employee receives IRS Form 1099-M rather than IRS Form W-2. If a form is not specified in the Description 2 field of the UDC, the system generates IRS Form W-2.

For employees who are paid multiple times within one pay period, the system should review previous payments within the same pay period and then adjust tax amounts. To specify this function, enter S.

If a tax method exists for an employee in addition to the normal tax method that is set up in the Employee Master Information table (F060116), the system can use the alternative tax method to interactively process interim payments. To specify this function, enter Z.

Some values, such as S and Z, might require additional setup in the UDC table.

Stat. Code (statutory code)

Enter a code that allows you to override supplemental taxes for federal and state taxes and to add additional local residence taxes. Values are:

County

Enter the name of a county, parish, or other political district that is necessary for the address or for tax purposes.

Prefix Phone-Work

Enter the first segment of a telephone number. In the United States, the prefix is the three-digit area code.

Phone Number-Work

Enter a number without the prefix or special characters, such as hyphens or periods, that makes up the telephone number for an entity. You can use any applicable telephone number format for a country. This field is used in conjunction with the Prefix field (AR1), where you enter the first segment of the telephone number, which is called the area code in the United States.

When you search for an address using a phone number, you must enter the number exactly as it is set up in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book system, including any special characters.

Prefix Phone-Home

Enter the prefix for telephone number 3. The default format for the Phone Prefix data dictionary item is set to the United States prefix (area code). This format is three characters enclosed in parentheses. For example, (303). If you require an alternate format to accommodate a non-United States prefix, you must change the data display rules in the data dictionary.

Phone Number-Home

Enter the telephone number. This field has been established in free form to allow incorporation of extension numbers and local telephone oddities. For example, Laramie, Wyoming could be expressed as 21-5223; and Singapore could be expressed as 011-65-469-8382. If all phone numbers are to follow a consistent format, you may specify an edit code in the data dictionary for the phone number.

Note:

In using the phone search capability of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book, you must spell the search in the same manner that you recorded the phone numbers.
Salu (salutation)

Enter a code for the salutation that is used to identify the proper title for a given employee. Some examples of salutations are Mr., Ms., Dr., and so on.

Suff (suffix)

Enter the suffix code is used to identify the credentials for a given employee. Some examples are Phd, MD, CPA, and so on.

For example, Laramie, Wyoming could be expressed as 21-5223; and Singapore could be expressed as 011-65-469-8382. If all phone numbers are to follow a consistent format, you may specify an edit code in the data dictionary for the phone number.

Note:

When using the phone search capability of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book, you must spell the search in the same manner that you recorded the phone numbers.
Check Route Code

Enter a code from UDC 07/CR that specifies the check routing or mail-stop code. Use this code to sequence the printing of payroll checks to facilitate their handling and delivery.

P C (pre-note code)

Enter a code that lets you test the deposit instructions for one pay period before actually processing a deposit. Adding an employee to this form automatically activates this person in the automated deposit system. The system prenotes this employee in the next applicable payroll run to test the auto deposit instructions you have set up before actually depositing a check. In the prenote test, the system creates a no-dollar entry for this employee and sends it to the employee's bank account. In addition, the employee receives a check for this amount. After the test, the system changes this field to N. To repeat this test, enter P in this field.

If you leave this field blank, the system uses the default value of P.

If you change an employee's automatic deposit instructions, the system creates a prenote. If you do not want a prenote, you must change the value in the Prenote Flag field to N.

You cannot use this field for Canadian employees.

Req No. (requisition number)

Enter the number that identifies the position requisition. This number must be unique. The next number program assigns this number if no other number is provided when the requisition is initially entered.

Candidate Req. Status (candidate requisition status)

Enter the code from UDC 08/CN to indicate the current activity level of a candidate record that is attached to a requisition.

You can group candidate requisition status codes based on the hard-coded special handling code values in the table. These hard-coded values are:

  • CAN: Any candidate code.

  • DET: Any code indicating that the position is detached or no longer filled.

  • FIL: Any code indicating that the position has been filled.

  • REJ: Rejected

  • TMP: Temporarily filled.

Candidate requisition status codes that have a special handling code of either FIL or TMP update the Filled Headcount field. However, only those status codes that have special handling codes of FIL can cause the system to change the requisition status to Filled and Closed.

E M (address type - employee)

Enter Y to indicate that the address number represents an employee.

This code is for information only. It has no predetermined use in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book system.

Remark 1 (Email)

Enter as many as 40 characters of text.

Days/ Year

Enter the number of workdays in a year. The number of standard days per year multiplied by the number of hours per day equals the standard hours per year.

When you set up the human resources system options and you use the pay grade step table as the default source for the pay rate, the system calculates the salary for an employee by multiplying the standard days per year by the employee's hourly rate.

AB Cat 01 (address book category code 01)

Enter one of thirty reporting codes that you can assign to an address in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book system. Use these codes to group address book records for reports, mailings, and so on. Category codes are user-defined (system 01, types 01 through 30). Examples of category codes include:

  • Category code 01: Location or Branch

  • Category code 02: Salesperson

  • Category code 03: Product

  • Category code 04: Credit officer

P/R 001 (payroll category code 01)

Enter a category code that defines payroll system needs. You can define the use and description of this code to fit your organization. For example, you can set up a category code for information such as division, supervisor, branch office, health insurance plan, stock plan, and so on.

Note:

When setting up category codes in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Human Capital Management system, you should coordinate information with the payroll department to insure that information is not duplicated or overwritten.
Elig 1 (eligibility 1)

Enter a code to specify an employee's eligibility for or participation in various user-defined plans or programs.

For example, these codes can be used to designate:

  • Voluntary Accidental Death/Dismemberment Insurance (Y/N).

  • Overtime Call Up (Y/N).

  • Profit Sharing (Y/N).

  • Political Action Committee (Y/N).

  • Coffee Fund (Y/N).

  • U.S. Citizen (Y/N).

The category code fields are examples of multiple, similar fields that are user-defined. You can use up to 30 Category Code - Address book fields that can be assigned to addresses in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Address Book system for tracking purposes. You can use up to 20 Category Codes - Payroll fields for Payroll tracking needs. You can also use up to ten Eligibility Codes to specify employee eligibility for participation in various user-defined plans or programs. For example, you might want to track employee eligibility for programs such as overtime call-up, profit sharing, political action committees, or an office coffee fund.

Note:

If you use the GeoCoder, the system uses the employee's address information to determine the GeoCode for the Tax Area (Residence) field, and uses the GeoCode from the employee's home business unit to determine the GeoCode for the Tax Area (Work) field. The system automatically populates these fields if there is only one possible GeoCode available for the field. If you are using the GeoCoder to interactively assign tax area information and the fields remain blank, or if you use the batch GeoCoder.

17.6 Running the Process Pending Employees Report

This section provides an overview of the Process Pending Employees report (R060116P) and discusses how to:

  • Run the Process Pending Employees Report.

  • Set processing options for Process Pending Employees.

17.6.1 Understanding the Process Pending Employees Report

The Process Pending Employees report (R060116P) updates the Employee Master Information table (F060116) and the Address Book Master table (F0101) with information from the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table (F060116Z).

The R060116P report generates an error report in all cases. If the system finds errors or incomplete employee records, error messages are printed and the databases are not updated with the new employee information. If no errors are found, the report indicates that none occurred. This report compares all new information to the data in the F060116 file before any of the new information is transferred.

If you receive error messages, you can use the Employee Work File Revisions program (P060116P) to correct employee records and then rerun the report to update the F060116 and F0101 tables with the new employee records. The system processes each record individually. The system records a completed status for each record when updates to the F060116 and F0101 tables are successful.

17.6.2 Running the Process Pending Employees Report

Select Employee Quick Hire (G05BE11), Process Pending Employees.

17.6.3 Setting Processing Options for Process Pending Employees (R060116P)

1. Security Business Unit

Specify whether the system automatically supplies the security business unit from the Address Book table (F0101). Values are:

0 or blank: Do not supply (default).

1: Supply.

If you complete the Security Business Unit field on the Pending Employee Defaults form (W060116QB) and this processing option is set to 1, the system uses the value from the Pending Employee Defaults form when you add an employee record.

If you enter 0, you must manually enter the security business unit when you add an employee record.

2. Tax Areas

Specify whether the Residence Tax Area and Work Tax Area fields are required when you add or change an employee record. The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Payroll system uses the tax area fields to calculate payroll taxes for employees. Values are:

1: Tax area fields are not required. Enter this value only if you are not using the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Payroll system to process payroll for employees.

0: Tax area fields are required. Enter this value if you are using the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Payroll system. Blank means the same as 0.

3. Job Information

Specify whether the system automatically supplies the Employee Quick Hire form (W060116QA) with certain job information when you complete the Job Type field. The system retrieves information in these job information fields from the Job Information table (F08001): Pay Type,Pay Frequency,WCI Code (Workers Comp Insurance Code), SC (Sub Class-Workers Comp), Benefit Group, and Union Code. Values are:

1: Supply.

0: Do not supply.

4. Job Category Codes

Specify whether the system automatically supplies values for job category codes. Values are:

1: Supply.

0: Do not supply.

5. Country Code

Specify the country code.

6. Contact Type

8. Work Phone Type

Specify the UDC for a work phone type in the Contact Phone table (F0115). The system uses the phone number that you enter on the Quick Hire form (W060116QA) to update the Employee Master and Address Book tables with the type of work phone number you specified with the code.

9. Business Unit/Job ID Cross Reference

Specify whether the system automatically supplies values for the business unit/job ID information for the new employee. Values are:

1: Use default business unit/job ID information.

0: Do not use default business unit/job ID information.

17.6.3.2 Versions

Use these processing options to specify program versions that you want the Process Pending Employees program to use.

1. Applicant Information

Specify the version of the Applicant Entry program (P08401) that the system uses for transferring applicant information. If the applicant records that you are adding include supplemental data, you can specify a program version that the system uses to transfer the supplemental data along with the applicant information to the new employee records. If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses the default version, ZJDE0001, which does not transfer supplemental data.

Note:

For the system to transfer an applicant's supplemental data, you must also set a processing option to transfer supplemental data in the processing options for the Applicant Entry program (P08401).
2. Address Book MBF (address book master business function)

Specify the version if the Address Book Master Business Function (MBF) that the system uses. If you are using interoperability transactions, you might want to specify a version that updates the Address Book table (F0101). If you leave this processing option blank, the system uses the default version, ZJDE0001.

Note:

If you specify an Address Book MBF version, you must also set a processing option to indicate the interoperability outbound transaction in the processing options for the Address Book Master Business Function (P0100041).

17.6.3.3 Action

Use these processing options to specify to specify whether you want to run this report in final mode so that master files are updated and processed records are deleted.

  • Requisition Activity (F08105)

  • Applicant Master (F08401)

  • Address Book (F0101)

  • HR History (F08042)

Values are:

0: Update only the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table.

1: Update all of the linked tables.

If you set the processing option to 0, you can review and revise the employee information before the system updates the databases. After you review and revise information, you need to run the Process Pending Employees program (R060116P) to update the databases.

2. Purge Processed Records

Specify whether to allow the system to delete records automatically after they have been successfully updated in the master tables. If you do not have the records deleted automatically, you can delete them later by running the Purge Pending Employees program (P060116PP). Values are:

1: Delete.

0: Do not delete.

3. Effective On (EFTO) in Employee History (Release 9.2 Update)

1: Update with Date Started (DST).

0: Update with System Date.

17.7 Revising New Employee Records

This section provides an overview of new employee record revision and discusses how to revise new employee records.

17.7.1 Understanding New Employee Record Revision

To ensure accuracy of your new employee records, you can add, change, or delete records from the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table (F060116Z) before or after running the Process Pending Employees report (R060116P).

If you need to correct errors that display in the Process Pending Employees report (R060116P), you can use the Employee Work File Revisions program (P060116P) to make changes that the system saves in the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File (F060116Z).

You need to correct the errors and then rerun the report to update the Employee Master Information (F060116) and Address Book Master (F0101) tables. The system saves the entire batch of records in the Employee Master Information and Address Book Master tables only when the report runs successfully.

17.7.2 Form Used to Revise New Employee Records

17.8 Purging Pending Employee Information

This section provides an overview of pending employee information purges and discusses how to purge pending employee information.

17.8.1 Understanding Pending Employee Information Purges

After you update the Employee Master Information (F060116) and Address Book Master (F0101) tables with batches of new employee records, you need to purge the information from the Unedited Quick Hire Transaction File table (F060116Z) occasionally to free up space in the table. Purging the table removes the information so that you can continue to add new employee records. You can run this process if you are experiencing performance problems with Employee Quick Hire or if you want to avoid scrolling through many processed employee records to view the ones for which you are looking.

17.8.2 Purging Pending Employee Information

Select Employee Quick Hire (G05BE11), Purge Pending Employees.
