Employee Management

Case/Task Number Description
CAS-15662-T7B7 When creating HR requests for an assignment on leave, the Leave fields did not correctly populate.

Resolved two issues:

  • When an HR Request effective date is within the pay period dates of the report, the employees Current Grid and FTE are grossly overstated. 
  • The Status for employees on Leave are not displaying on the OECTA report with AC.

  • Processing an Absence Request inserted a line in Absence Registration.
