This feature is only used if you have implemented the SAP Concurrent Employment model (for Global Employment).The system then allows you to send an employee on an assignment to a an affiliate company in the host country, and temporarily exit him in the home country. At the end of the assignment you repatriate him. Hence this feature informs the system which actions are related to Global Employment activities.Otherwise it has no effect on your system.

Basically ACTCE feature recognizes the action if you are trying to perform any action on the person who already exist in your system and have valid actions.

Concurrent Employment  

Posted by SAP HR in

In general, concurrent employment is defined as an employment situation in which an employee has several personnel assignments with one organization. The organization may be a group of employers or an enterprise. The personnel assignments may occur simultaneously, and the tasks required may vary from job to job. The concurrent employment solution provided by mySAP ERP includes key functional areas, such as personnel administration, benefits, time management, payroll, and reporting. These key functional areas together with the technological framework provide the necessary infrastructure to support concurrent employment.

Technological FrameWork
The variety of concurrent employment situations and the myriad administrative burdens that often accompany assignmentscan make HR professionals wonder how they can transform their organization from a traditional "one person, oneassignment" model to a "one person, multiple assignment" culture. The answer is a technological framework that enables you to manage concurrent employment situations. This technological framework consists of the concurrent employment model delivered with mySAP ERP.

Concurrent Employment Model
The concurrent employment model in mySAP ERP describes the relationship between the employee and the organization.The most important concepts are as follows:

* Each employee can have multiple personnel assignments. A permanent record of personal information, including the person's name and address, is kept independent of the individual assignments.
Each personnel assignment is linked to the person.
A personnel assignment describes the work that the person needs to do, when the work is to be done, and how that work is to be paid, among other characteristics. In mySAP ERP, each personnel assignment is given a unique personnel number for this purpose. For example, Donna has two personnel assignments: one at the pediatric clinic as a pediatric nurse and the other at Memorial Hospital as a cardiology nurse. Both assignments are under the umbrella of the same healthcare institution and are active simultaneously. Because each personnel assignment has a unique number, you can easily identify the characteristics of each assignment within mySAP ERP.
The concurrent employment model in mySAP ERP is flexible enough to be used for different kinds of concurrent employment situations. For example, the solution does not limit the number of personnel assignments that a person can have. Each personnel assignment refers to a person who might hold one or several positions at the same time; the solution can track which assignments are active or inactive. This concurrent employment model serves as the framework for the concurrent employment solution in mySAP ERP. The key functional areas have also been enhanced based on this model.

The time management capabilities of mySAP ERP, which are delivered in mySAP ERP HCM, support HR professionals in the planning, recording, and tracking of an employee's work history, the days worked, and the days missed due to illness, vacation,and so on. It is an efficient and effective time managementsystem that you can adapt to meet your specific needs.

Time management is subject to fundamental regulations that are rather complex in the case of employees in concurrentemployment situations. This is why SAP enhanced the time management capabilities of mySAP ERP to manage employees' working time across simultaneously active personnel assignments.

Work Schedules:The work schedule is an essential element of successful time management in concurrent employment scenarios. For example, Donna has two work schedules: one for the pediatric clinic for her early shift and break times and another at Memorial Hospital for her late shift and its break times. From her organization's perspective, it is important to verify that Donna works the hours she has been assigned in both jobs. With mySAP ERP, the time administrator at the healthcare institution can view Donna's work schedules in one simple report. Additionally, HR personnel at both the pediatric clinic and Memorial Hospital can monitor her work independently. Furthermore, mySAP ERP allows you to combine work schedules under different views. This allows time management administrators to catch any scheduling conflicts and prevent overstaffing. And this information empowers administrators to make the right staffing decisions on a case-by-case basis.
Time Evaluation
The time evaluation capabilities of mySAP ERP valuate the time an employee has worked, along with time missed due to sickness, vacation, and so on. You can calculate overtime, manage time accounts, update time quotas, and check working times. In a concurrent employment environment, time evaluation is a critical tool for valuating the time an employee has worked and the days missed for different personnel assignments that are simultaneously active. Additionally, the time evaluation and payroll capabilities of mySAP ERP are completely integrated, which considerably simplifies the process of paying employees with multiple personnel assignments.

Because of the scope and complexity of tasks, payroll software requires a high degree of accuracy and flexibility. After all, employees expect to be paid the correct wage in a timely manner. A payroll system must also be flexible enough to support numerous legal and organization-specific regulations. Concurrent employment situations add even more complexity to the process.

Payroll Process Architecture:
In a concurrent employment environment, it is often necessary to run payroll simultaneously for each personnel assignment. This is now possible, thanks to a new payroll architecture. The parts of the payroll process that have to do with a personnel assignment are processed sequentially. The parts of the payroll process that are grouping-related are processed together in a synchronization point. For example, in the chart, the tax, net calculation, retroactive accounting calculation, and payment calculations are performed simultaneously at synchronization points. The payroll log displays payroll results both from the perspective of the person and from the perspective of that individual's personnel assignments.

Payroll Payment and Posting to Accounting:
A very important aspect of the payroll is the payment - informing the person about the payment and performing the actual payment by means of a check or a bank transfer. At the same time, it is important for the employer to record these payments accurately.

Payroll Payment:
Once the payroll has been run, it is necessary to pay wages and salaries to the person, taking into consideration bank requirements and payments to third parties. In concurrent employment, the person usually likes to have the payment and bank transfer combine the net amounts from the different personnel assignments. The mySAP ERP solution for concurrent employment makes this possible by defining a payment group.

Country Versions for Concurrent Employment Solution:
One of the greatest challenges for international enterprises is compliance with the laws and regulations of the country in which they operate. For example, the regulations for calculating taxes or garnishments may differ materially. Currently, mySAP ERP provides payroll capabilities for concurrent employment based on a country-specific solution for the United States and Canada only. The enhanced payroll architecture and other solution elements described in this document only pertain to the U.S. and Canadian country versions with others to follow.

Positive & Negative Time Management  

Posted by SAP HR in

Positive Time Management:
Positive Time Management is when an employee has to "Clock-in and Clock-out" each day. There must be a time entry or absence entry for every scheduled work day.
Negative Time Management is when an employee only has to record absences or "variations" to the work schedule - works overtime, works other than regular scheduled hours, vacation, jury duty, funeral leave, etc.
Hourly employees - those paid for each hour worked usually use positive time recording, Salaried employees, paid regular amounts regardless of time worked usually use negative time recording.
The details are as follows : There are 2 Mechanisms of time recording are available
1.Positive time recording :- Actual times are recorded
This method completely records all actual times, that is, all transactions such as actual working times, absences, and so on.
2.Negative time recording :- Deviations from a work schedule are recorded.

Recording Only Deviations to Work Schedules
This method records only employee time data that represents exceptions or deviations to the work schedule assigned to employees. Here you can include the most current data, such as employee illnesses, schedule and record substitutions, and enter annual leave for employees.
SAP provides various Info types for time recording purposes.
All above explanations are correct, however to simplify :
In Positive time, where you need to maintain all in time out time either through Time Recorder or some time it is uploaded after maintaining manually.
When you record in time as 8.30 am and out time as 19.30 pm. against your DWS 8.30 am to 16.30 pm. applicable on that day, the additional 3 hrs automatically gets into Overtime...whereas if you don't record your in time or out time any day against your X planned working hours in DWS, it means its your absent that day.
Whereas in negative time: You maintain these additional 3 hrs in Overtime Infotype. and absence in 2001 infotype for that PERNR.

Infotypes are units of information in the Human Resource Management System.
Infotypes are used to record employee data for administrative, time recording, and payroll purposes is of primary importance for master data administration in HR.In the SAP System, the information units used to enter master data are called infotypes.
They are also used to group related data fields together. They provide information with a structure, facilitate data entry, and enable you to store data for specific periods.

For your quick reference look into the below infotype range for each sub-module of SAP HR

Number Range Description
0000-0999 Personnel Admin
1000-1999 Personnel Planning/Org Mgt
2000-2999 Time Data
4000-4999 Applicant Data (recruitment)

The infotypes for Personnel Administration would fall between 0000-0999,for Personnel Planning/Org Mgt would fall between 1000-1999 and 2000-2999,4000-4999 for Time Management and Recruitment respectively.
Apart from the above SAP Defined Infotypes we can creat our own custom Infotypes as per our needs.The range for the Custom Infotypes should start with 9 and should be between 9000-9999.

Infotypes are characterized by the following 3 main things

1.Infotype Structure:
To the user, infotypes appear as data entry screens. They contain whole series of information (for example, last name, first name, date of birth) that you enter in data fields. Data fields concerning the same or similar subject matter are combined into data groups or information units.
In database terms, infotypes represent a data structure or set of related data records. When you update an infotype, old data is not lost but is instead stored in the system for historical evaluation purposes.

2.Data Entry:
You perform data entry as follows:
Your entries are automatically checked for accuracy and against table entries.
Predefined default values help you to enter and maintain data.
Checks and default values depend on the employee’s organizational assignment. The organizational assignment determines the relevant information used from time recording, wage type and pay scale structure.

3:Time-Dependent Storage of Infotype Data:
When you update an infotype, the old data may not be lost. Instead, it must be retained so that past data can be evaluated. When you update an employee’s personal data, the old data is automatically time-delimited. The system creates a validity period for each infotype record. As a result, each employee infotype has several data records that differ from each other by their validity periods.

SAP HR Tables  

Posted by SAP HR in

In SAP-HR the tables has the very important role to pick your data and to faster enough your configuration insted of going through the menu paths.Here is an useful information about the SAP-HR tables.

All personnel administration tables start with PA and the infotype number behind it.
All personnel development/OM tables start with HRP and infotype (e.g. 1000) behind it.
All recruitment tables start with PB and infotype number behind it.

Transaction SE16 (data browser) is also useful. As mentioned above, the PA infotype tables all begin with PA and are followed by the infotype number e.g. PA0001 for the Org Man infotype.

PA* - PA infotype tables
PCL* - HR clusters
PB* - recruitment tables
PCERT - payroll posting runs

Another useful table is CATSDB for CATS, and PTEX2000 for the CATS transfer table for infotype 2001/2002.

SAP HR Interview Questions and Answers-OM,PA,TM,PY-Set1  

Posted by SAP HR in

Q:Payroll Results

How do you post the payroll results to FICO? I created one symbolic account and assigned the
same to Salaries GL Account and then completed the other configuration steps needed to complete
the procedure. However, when I tried to run the simulation for posting to FICO, I got the message
“Document is not generated”.
A: If you have selected “Output Log” at the beginning of your configuration procedure, it will tell you at the bottom part what went wrong.


What is the basis of valuation of certain wage components such as Provident Fund? Where does
one configure it? A corollary question is what if another component – i.e., Special Allowance is
made as basis of calculation at another time? How is this configured?
A: Go to view V_T511 wage type char and read the F1 help for field Indirect Evaluation module. Module PRZNT will be applicable in this case. Also read help for V_T539J. Both these nodes can be found under Payroll Date>Basic Pay.

Q: Deduction Wage Type

We have a deduction wage type displayed in the window of our pay slip that shows a negative value.
This causes problems and we have tried several measures to correct this including conversion rule 16 for our wage type in the same window but so far, without any success. How can we correct or delete the negative sign?
A: You can review OSS Note 406977.
This is a collective note of issues with RPCEDTx0 with examples of problems and solutions.

Q: Payroll Simulation

How do I correct the payroll simulation entry and check the correctness of our master data? What if one
hundred employees get rejected due to error 167-process health plans. What does the following error
“No entry for plan DENT/cost variant.
A: You should check for the cost element associated and the validity of cost rule for this plan. To do this,
check your configuration under Benefits>Plans>Health Plans>Define cost variant and define cost rules.

Q:Leave Quota

How do I make sure that if an employee goes over the limit of a leave quota , the future leave accrual will be
reflected accurately?
A:Configure the negative deduction and check these through the rules.


I need to capture a reason in additional payment IT0015. The reason code is “save” in this infotype.
I tried to capture for reason A Example to ADDWT 9999 if Reason ADDWT9998. How can I check the
reason in IT0015 for accuracy?
A: You can try using this to start with: ‘TABLEP0015> VARGBPREAS’
Then, use the variable key to define the different reasons.

Q:Payroll Simulation

Why is the system not picking up the values changed this month by default during payroll simulation? However, when I tried last month’s retro date, it picks up correctly. How can this issue be corrected?
A: You can check the “Earliest MD change” date on infotype 0003. If you have done that already and
payroll simulation still doesn’t function by default, then there is a problem with your infotype and/or wage type
retro settings. Check table T582A.

Q:Single Payroll

Is it possible to configure a single payroll to pay an individual in multiple currencies?
A: No. The system can be configured to pay in multiple currencies but not to pay an individual in multiple
