  • In case of multiple employments (Concurrent, Global assignment and Rehire with New employment) personal information is common across employments.
  • If any changes are performed in personal information of one employment it will be updated in other employments associated to that employee as well. 


  • This is expected behavior.
  • In Rehire Employee Scenario, Personal Information and Job Information are defaulted.
  • In Rehire with New Employment, Personal information will be defaulted based on hire/rehire information and Organization data will not be defaulted.
