HR Jobs Pros and Cons
- Allows tracking of Job Change history with effective dates and reason codes.
- Allows for defaults for Standard Work Day, Employee Type, EEO Class, Union, Pay Grade, Pay Type, Workers Comp Code, and Competencies to auto-populate based on the Job assigned. Defaults can be overridden on the employee level.
- When changing an employee’s job, the employee profile will be updated with the defaults for that job, regardless of whether they were overridden previously. Users run the risk of errors if they do not go back and update any exceptions to the defaults after a job change.
