Position Management - Manage Primary Incumbent

Use the Employee Assignment section to manage the Primary Incumbent.

For each position-employee assignment you must define the primary incumbent and the primary position.

When unassigning the current primary incumbent of the position, the second incumbent is automatically entered as the new primary incumbent of the position and vice-versa. When unassigning the current primary position of the employee the second position is automatically entered as the new primary position of the employee.

This automatic change is not executed if it is not possible to clearly identify the new primary incumbent of the position or the new primary position of the employee. This occurs in particular for more than 2 active position-employee assignments.

Note: For past records, it is not possible to keep the “Primary Incumbent” or “Primary Position” information.

Note: Typically, a primary incumbency is designated when an employee assignment is added.

To add or change Primary Incumbency:

  1. Select the Positions tab.
  2. In the Position Title column, select the appropriate position.
  3. In the Employee Assignment section, select Edit for the appropriate employee assignment.
  4. In the Primary Incumbent box, check or clear the check-box.
  5. Select SAVE.
