Employment Details / Employment Details Model:

  • The example rule below uses this base object: Employment Details/Employment Details Model
  • Please note, the model name in the rule selection drop-down may be different depending on the label you use for this HRIS Element.
  • In case of an alert, all records are created after new hire, that is why you have to use Employment Details Model as the base object.


Base object Employment details will not work for changes, it will work on new hire only. It is not effective  dated.

Employee Information / Employee Information Model: (which is a navigation start point to all other entities)

  • Employee Information  is used only in new hire process, for example new hire on save rules, and so on.
  • This refers to the hireActionBean
  • Employee Information.jobinfo will not get any value after the employee has been hired into the system

Correct Example for an "Alert Rule" for a New Hire employee:

  • This rule has the goal to set an alert for a US non-contactor employee
  • The Base Object is set to Employment Details Model
  • This rule will be called under the Employment Info (employementDetails) element within Manage Business Configuration or the Succession Data Model.
