Manage HR Employee Relations in non-scoped HR

You can define and maintain HR employee relations data that is used for creating and assigning employee relations cases in the non-scoped version of HR.

The HR • Employee Relations module contains a list of all open employee relations cases. The module allows HR agents to add and modify disciplinary issues and types, as well as warning types.

The following information is set up and maintained as part of the HR • Employee Relations module. Employees can access HR employee relations information and submit HR employee relations cases from the HR Service Portal. HR managers or administrators set up and modify the information.
  • HR Employee Relations Case Management
  • Disciplinary Issues
    • Disciplinary Issue Types

  • Create HR employee relations cases for employees to record the processing of HR disciplinary issues, such as a report from an employee about an absent co-worker or co-worker misconduct.
  • View HR employee relations case information and manage the overall HR workload. For example, a manager can work with all HR cases that are not assigned.

HR employee relations cases can have one or more associated HR tasks to manage individual pieces of work within the case.
