Time to Transfer or Time to Add Job?

September 25, 2020

Test your knowledge: You have a staff worker you want to bring on for a part-time job from 10/1 to 1/15. The worker currently has a separate, active part-time staff job with another department that goes from 9/1 to 10/5. You have confirmed with the worker that the 10/5 end date on their active job is correct. Should you use the Change Job - Transfer process or the Add an Additional Job process to get your department’s job in place?

Answer: Because the two jobs will both exist at the same time for a few days (10/1 -10/5), your department’s job will need to be added as an additional job. Transfers for staff workers are done when only one job will exist at a time with no overlap in time between them. For more information, refer to the Add Additional Job for Staff Workday Instructional Guide (WIG).
