Adding Employee Assignments

This topic explains how to use HR Requests to add assignments to employees.

Use the Additional Assignment reason code when adding an additional assignment to an employee who already has an assignment. For example, a part-time nurse who is also employed part-time as a custodian. Or a teacher who is teaching in two different schools.

To add employee assignments:

  1. Click Tell Me and Search for HR Requests. Select the page from the drop-down list.
    The HR Request List displays.
