HR Case Management You use the Case and Knowledge Management application to create, view, or edit HR cases in the scoped version of HR. HR cases are created from HR requests or inquiries related to HR account or systems, benefits, payroll, performance management, reporting, talent acquisition, time and expense reporting, and more. Self-Service HR case creation From the Employee Service Center (HR Service Portal), employees can inquire or request HR services from the following categories: Benefits Employee Data Management Employee Relations General HR Systems Payroll Talent Management Visas An HR case is created when an HR service is requested through the Employee Service Center. HR agent case creation Employees can inquire about HR services via email, chat, or phone. HR agents can create an HR case based on a Center of Excellence (COE) or HR service. After an HR case is created, it is assigned to an HR agent and/or an assignment group via the HR service and associated HR template. HR cases can have one or more associated HR tasks or HR child cases that make up the parent case.
