 View Options:              Print
Procedure Updated: 

Use this procedure to copy an existing Date Specifications (0041) infotype record and update it with necessary changes. Using the Copy action will retain the history of the previous record.


Necessary changes to the Date Specifications (0041) infotype may include:

  • Adding new date types
  • Removing date types that are no longer needed
  • Adjusting existing dates due to part-time employment, prior state service, or leave without pay.

Refer to collective bargaining agreements, WAC 357, and the Date Adjustments Guide for more information on date adjustments.

Be sure to communicate with your payroll processor before entering retroactive changes to an employee's Date Specifications (0041) infotype record.

If you are retroactively adjusting date types that affect an employee’s leave accrual (Anniversary Date or Unbroken Service Date), this procedure may require a hand-off to the time and attendance processor, depending on the structure of your agency and your role at your agency. The time and attendance processor should refer to the Time Evaluation procedure to reevaluate the employee’s leave accruals.
