Maintaining the Expected Job End Date in HRS


This procedure lists the steps to update the Expected Job End Date (EJED) field. This field is used in a nightly process to automatically insert a termination row on Job Data once the EJED passes. If an employee's job is to be extended, users must modify the Expected Job End Date prior to the date passing to prevent this auto-termination.

Process Considerations:

  • Expected Job End Date should not be used in lieu of adding a termination row with an appropriate Action/Action Reason.
  • Institutions should use the public query, UW_HR_EXPECTED_JOB_END_DATE ( Running the Expected Job End Date (EJED) Query in HRS), to proactively monitor employees with upcoming expected job end dates to prevent unintentional terminations.
  • The nightly Auto Term process runs every evening excluding Saturdays. For all expected job end dates through the last payroll end date in the payroll calc, a termination row is entered. If the EJED is changed to a date within the pay period, but after the payroll confirm, the term row won't be inserted with the nightly run until after the payroll checks have been cut. As a result, the employee will be overpaid.
  • Institutions should review the nightly EJED term report delivered through Cypress.
  • If an employee has multiple jobs and the primary job is terminated due to the EJED, a department will need to change the secondary job to primary using the same Effective Date of the terminated job (Updating the HR Primary Indicator in HRS) and review the employee's Benefits Primary Flag (Rebuilding Benefits Primary Job Flags in HRS).

    Warning Sign  If the Expected Job End Date is not modified prior to that date passing, a termination row will automatically be added to the Empl Record. The downstream impacts of not proactively changing this date may include termination of all benefits, WRS, and paid leave requiring a manual reinstatement of the employee.
