Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Employee's Employment Information
  2. Click Take Action > Add: Concurrent Employment
  3. Click on Event Reason > Select the event reason for Add Concurrent Employment


  • Event assigned to the Event Reason is associated to event other than Hire
  • Logged in user does not have view / edit permission for event reason


● Grant edit / view permissions for the event reasons

1. Go to Admin Center > Manage Permission Roles and open the permission role for the user.

2.Under User Permissions section, scroll down to Employee Data then look under Event Reason.

3. Check Edit / View permissions for the related event reasons which should be visible for the user.

4.Click Done and then Save Changes.

Change event associated to the event reasons to 'Hire'

Event Reason must have the Event "Hire" set. This is because concurrent employment will create a new UserID and a set of job information. For all job information records, the 1st record must be always be a "Hire" event. Once the Event assigned to the event reason has been changed to "Hire" then it will now appear in Add Concurrent Employment UI. To change the event for event reasons:

1. Go to Admin Center > Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures.

2. Select Event Reason then select the respective event reason to be changed.

3. Click Take Action > Make Correction then change the Event to "Hire" > Save.
