HR - Rehiring an Employee
This guide lists the steps for rehiring an employee in HRS. A Rehire action is used when an employee has a termination row on Job Data and is being hired into the same or a different job anywhere in the UW System.
- If the employee has an active Empl Record, will not be continuing in that job, and there will be no break-in-service between jobs, this should be a Transfer. See HR - Maintain Workforce - Transfers.
- If the rehire is University Staff Ongoing (CP) or University Staff Project (CJ), you may need to update the Adjusted Continuous Service Date (ACSD). The ACSD is updated on the Modify a Person page. See HR - UW Personal - Adjusted Continuous Service Date.
- HRS Navigation: Workforce Administration > Job Information > Job Data

NOTE: If the Position number is being reused for the employee's Rehire, click the Override Position Data button and then click the Use Position Data button to refresh any information that may have changed on the position in between termination and rehire. (For example, if a department change occurred on the Position while the employee was Terminated, the change from Position may not flow to the Job, and it can cause issues downstream if the wrong department is used.)
