Concurrent Employment – basics

The Concurrent Employment is basically an employment scenario based on several personnel assignments between the employee and the employer. The personnel assignments can run simultaneously.

Concurrent employment allows an employee to hold multiple positions at the same time and these positions are then linked together for the purposes of payroll, time and benefits processing.

This scenario is very common in educational institutions and hospitals.

For example,
–Dania works full-time as a PACE Nurse Manager for Johns Hopkins Hospital, making $43/hr
–In addition, she works as a float pool Option RN II, making $24/hr plus differentials.

Employees with concurrent employments usually have as many personnel numbers as the personnel assignment. However, they are further assigned one PERSON ID, to enable proper tracking throughout the employment of that employee in the company. The different personnel assignments are linked by the Person ID. While the personnel assignment identifies the characteristics of the assignments such as work schedule and remuneration, the Person ID describes the functions to be performed by the employee during the assignments. The infotype for maintaining Person ID is 0709.

The concurrent employment model in SAP with regards to CE is for reporting purposes. It is the logical database framework (PNPCE) for reporting on Concurrent Employment.

You can maintain infotype on concurrent assignment via PA30, PA40 and PA61.
