About workers

About departments, jobs, and positions

You can create a worker record in one of these ways:

  • Hire an applicant – When you hire an applicant, the applicant’s information is used to create a worker record. For information, see Hire an applicant.

  • Hire multiple people – You can create a mass-hire project to hire multiple people for the same job. For information, see Key tasks: Mass hire projects.

  • Hire a person – You can manually create a worker record for a person who isn’t an applicant and who wasn’t part of a mass-hire project. See the following procedures for more information.

  3. On the Action Pane, click Hire.

  4. Enter the first, middle, and last name of the person you’re hiring to fill the position.

  5. Select the legal entity to associate to the worker. The default legal entity is the legal entity that you’re currently logged on to.

    If a number sequence code is specified for the personnel number reference in the Number sequence area of the Human resources shared parameters form, you can’t change the information in this field.

  7. The remaining fields in the form contain default information. This information was specified when the position was created. You can accept the default information or change it.

To change a position assignment for a worker, add a position assignment to a new worker, transfer a worker from one position to another position, or end a worker’s position assignment, complete one of these procedures.

NoteNote
  • As of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3 Cumulative Update 8, worker positions include a work cycle. If a worker has multiple positions, all positions must have the same work cycle. For more information, see Work cycle and work period tasks.

  • If you use the Applications list page or a mass-hire project to hire a worker, a position is already assigned to the worker.

  • You can’t assign a retired or filled position to a worker.
