Process the WED Missing or Incorrect Date of Birth Report in HRS


The UW_HR_MISSING/INCORRECT_DATE_OF_BIRTH is an error report created to find Employee Date of Birth data errors. These errors appear in the WED notifying credentialed users of missing/incorrect employee data and the ability to fix them accordingly in an on-demand basis.

The employee's Date of Birth is either missing or incorrect. When a Date of Birth is missing, it causes a payroll calculation error in the system even if the employee is not enrolled in a benefit plan that uses a Date of Birth to determine premium costs. Dates of Birth are also required for background checks and to determine those who meet Selective Service requirements. An incorrect number can be reported to a vendor requiring manual clean up later.

Process Considerations:

  • Error Listing contains Employees with:
    • Missing DOB
    • Incorrect DOB (based on age calculation of less than 14 years old or more than 105 years old)
  • The WED is available for credentialed users ONLY and are based on current security roles.  Queries will be viewable only if they have the ability to fix them.
  • There may be soft warnings that will pop up after clicking Save.  Please click through these warnings to allow for the Save.
  • Exceptions
    • Employees in a 'No Pay Basis' are not included; however, we encourage a best business practice to enter this data for all employees.
