Change Job, Effective Dates, and Start Dates

In Workday, you can initiate Change Job processes using the same effective date as the Position Start Date, including retro changes. In most cases, you can make updates to a worker’s Scheduled Weekly Hours, Job Profile, Job Classification, Supervisory Organization, and Employee Type with the same effective date as the Position Start Date, without the need to contact Operational Support.

For example, suppose you need to update a new worker’s scheduled weekly hours (SWH) but found out about the change after their start date. In this case, you can perform a Change Job with the effective date set to the Position Start Date to update their SWH without needing Operational Support to rescind the original Hire process first.
