Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Personnel Administration work center.
  2. Go to Regular Tasks view.
  3. Choose the tab relevant to the country in which you would rehire the Employee.
  4. Select Rehire Employee.
  5. Fill the required details.
  6. Select Save.

Now Edit the Employee and go to Payment Information tab. You will see that the Payment method is removed and Main Bank Account is unchecked


You have rehired the Employee to a different Org unit. Whenever an employee is rehired to a new org unit its old main bank and payment method is cleared off. This is provided as functionality in the system because whenever an employee changes company he would want to change his bank for payment. So clearing off the main bank indicator is safer option, than to make payments to a wrong account.

For the employees which are hired in the same company, there will be no changes.


Please select the preferred Payment method and reselect the Main bank Account if the same details need to be maintained or else add the details as required.
