Correct Legal Employer of an Employee
In this short article we will see some simple steps to correct the legal employer/entity of a worker. Some time human error do take place and we enter incorrect data unknowingly. Some times those errors can be corrected easily, some time not. Unfortunately Legal Employer is one of those fields, which cannot be corrected easily. Please read further to see the how to correct Legal Employer of a worker in oracle fusion.
Steps to correct legal employer
As we said there is no direct way to correct the legal employer unlike business unit, location and department so you will need to first cancel the existing work relation of that worker. An enhancement request (17596602) was raised with oracle to change/edit the Legal Employer directly but the request was turned down with following note.
Given the current architecture of the system, its integration with payroll and the large number of existing customers; it is simply not possible to make this huge change which will impact various products like payroll and localizations. Customers need to use the existing Global Transfer functionality to make legal employer changes for their workers. In future releases we will try to simplify the data management when workers undergo Global Transfer. But the fundamental approach of Global Transfer cannot be changed. Hence this ER is being rejected.
