Rehire Action (PY) - Correct Erroneous Rehire Date

 View Options:              Print
Procedure Updated: 

Use this procedure to correct the rehire date of an employee who had an incorrect effective date entered during the rehire action.

This procedure will take you through the steps to delete the infotypes created during the payroll portion of the erroneous rehire action. Once all roles have completed their deletions, the personnel administration processor will enter a new rehire action with the correct rehire date.


The personnel administration, benefits, and time and attendance processors must correct all entries made during the erroneous rehire action. It is important to communicate with these other roles once you have completed the corrections below to identify and remedy any over/underpayment situations if necessary.

Effective Dates for all records should follow the Effective Dating Infotypes guidelines.

The personnel administration processor should always delete the Organizational Assignment screen last. This will ensure that all of the processors still have security access to the employee while making corrections.

This is a generalized example of correcting a Rehire Date. The steps may vary depending on the infotypes that were created/updated during the Rehire Action. For specific instructions, please contact

Please Note: For this example, we will use an employee whose incorrect Rehire Date was 10/1/2019. Each infotype created during the erroneous Rehire Action will be deleted and a correct PA40 rehire action will be entered.

  1. Step 1

    Ensure the time and attendance and benefits processors have deleted all the infotype records that were created during their portions of the erroneous rehire action. They should refer to the Rehire Action (BN) - Correct Erroneous Rehire Date procedure. 

  2. Step 2

    Identify each Payroll infotype with a record created effective the date of the erroneous Rehire.

You will need to repeat these steps with each payroll infotype that was created during the erroneous Rehire action.
