Next Run Date: July 8, 2022
The monthly Mass End Additional Job/Termination process will run on July 8, 2022, for all fixed-term employees and non-employees positions with an End Employment Date on or before June 30, 2022. To prepare, CSUs should run the Mass End Employment Date Audit - RPT0741 report in Workday.
See the Special Runs for the Academic Graduate Student Population section below for information about AGS employee runs of the Mass Term/EAJ process.
Reminder to Extend AGS Employees Before the AGS Mass Termination Process
If your office manages Academic Graduate Students (AGS) employees, remember that the AGS Mass Termination Process for summer will run on June 1, 2022. Be sure to extend any continuing AGS employees before the CSU processing deadline of noon on Friday, May 27. For more information, continue reading Reminder to Extend AGS Employees Before the AGS Mass Termination Process.
The monthly Mass End Additional Job/Termination process will run for all fixed-term employees and non-employees positions with an End Employment Date on or before the last day of the prior month. The effective date of the mass process will be equal to the End Employment Date on the position. In addition, if there is an Academic Appointment associated with the position, it will be ended (except Courtesy, Endowment, Affiliate, and Emeritus Academic Appointments).
Note that the process is not completely automated. Some positions will be excluded from the process if you do not take preparatory action. An audit report will help you identify which positions require action ahead of the scheduled mass process. The same report is used after the scheduled mass process to see which positions were excluded so that you know which positions you must end manually.
Tips for Optimizing the Mass Term Process – Each month, the Mass End Additional Job/Termination Process (mass term) reduces the effort involved in ending jobs in Workday that would otherwise have to be ended manually within a short window of time. Why is this important? Jobs not ended appropriately (unsuccessful transactions) can impact employee benefits and pay, CSU budgets, and resources resulting in extra time and effort. To learn how to help prevent most unsuccessful transactions, continue reading Tips for Optimizing the Mass Term Process.
Positions that have time blocks after their end employment date - If a time block exists (Unsubmitted, Submitted, In Progress, or Final Approved), an end job or termination will not be processed. The time block could indicate that the employee worked after their end employment date, and therefore, the End Employment Date should be extended.
Position has Completed BP with Effective Date after End Employment Date - Business processes with an effective date after the End Employment Date could indicate that the worker’s relationship to the University should continue and therefore the end employment date should be extended.
Positions where a Switch Primary is required - The Primary Job has an End Employment Date in the past, but additional jobs that are still active with End Employment Dates in the future.
- In Progress Transaction(s) - Any positions that have in-progress staffing transactions (Switch Primary, Add Job*, End Additional Job, Change Job, Termination).
Known Issue and Updated Guidance – We are working with Workday, Inc. to investigate and resolve an issue affecting the Monthly Mass End Additional Job / Termination Process. The issue causes Workday not to block terminations for workers with pending Add Additional Job transactions in certain stages. Until the issue is resolved, do not rely on a pending Add Additional Job to stop the Mass Term process from ending a worker with an end employment date in the past. To prevent a worker from being ended prematurely, be sure to process an extension if the worker is remaining in that job or a Transfer if they are starting a new one using the Change Job Business Process prior to the CSU processing deadline.
Pre & Post Mass Process Guidance
- Run the Mass End Employment Date Audit - RPT0741 report in Workday to identify which positions will be included in this mass process. The report returns currently active positions that have an end employment date that is on or prior to the date entered in the Comparison End Employment Date report field.
- The Comparison End Employment Date should be the last day of the previous month. Refer to the Schedule and Important Dates section below to identify which date should be used for each Process Month.
- The Indicator column indicates if the position will be ended
- Will be Ended - Indicates the position will be included in the mass process unless action is taken to extend the End Employment Date.
- Will Attempt to End - Indicates that the position has an in-progress event or has a completed event with an effective date after the End Employment Date at the time the report was run.
- Manual Intervention Required – Indicates that the position has a time block after the End Employment Date or a Switch Primary Job is needed. The CSU must take action before the mass process will end or terminate the position.
- Review the columns to the right in the report to review the reason why a position requires action.
- Extend the End Employment Date for any positions in the report that should not be ended or terminated by this process.
- Process any Change Jobs, Add Jobs, and/or Switch Primary Jobs for impacted positions prior to the CSU Transaction Processing Deadline. (Refer to the Schedule and Important Dates section for the exact date.)
- Delete or process any time blocks as appropriate/if applicable.
- Run the Mass End Employment Date Audit Report (RPT0741) to see which positions were NOT ended. (Compare this report to the “before” report to see which positions were ended.)
- Manually process necessary End Jobs, Terminations, and End Contingent Worker Contracts for positions that still need to be ended.
- For positions that ended and require additional changes:
- Costing Allocations: Changes can still be processed in Workday on positions that have been ended or terminated.
Scheduled Weekly Hours:
- For terminated positions, a rescind is required before changes can be made. Refer to the Rescind Transaction Guidance.
- For additional jobs that were ended,
- Process an Add Job for an increase in hours, or
- Request a rescind for a decrease in hours. Refer to the Rescind Transaction Guidance.
- After processing a change in Scheduled Weekly Hours, process an End Job or Termination as appropriate.
- If a transaction generated by this process needs to be rescinded, contact askUS@austin.utexas.edu following the Rescind Transaction Guidance.
To reduce unintended insurance enrollment changes for Academic Graduate Student (AGS) employees, the Mass EAJ/Term process now features additional run-dates at the beginning of the spring, summer, and fall semesters. The additional run-dates will only process terminations and end additional jobs for the AGS population. For help resolving insurance enrollment changes, AGS employees can refer to the Continuing AGS Employees section of the Frequently Asked Questions on the Academic Graduate Student Employee Insurance Options page of the Human Resources website.
