    Hi Venkatesh,

    As per my knowledge, if you are trying to demote the employee, you may run a personnel action (organisation re assignment) where you can assign the previous position which he was holding prior to his promotion. Accordingly all the necessary changes will happen and the pernr will go back to his previous position, Work schedules , payments and other benefits etc.

    If you would like to demote and retain the same position from the date where the employee has been promoted, maintain the same date and it runs the retro for these changes.

    However, to recover the already paid amount, you may deduct the April & May months through a deduction wage type ( something like salary adjustment) in regular pay periods through IT0014.

    Since, it is the mistake from business end, it should not impact the employee and the recover should be done in phases.

    • Hi Madhav,

      Thanks for the immediate response,

      You are saying that maintain both records with effective date from 01.05.2013

      But employee got promoted with effective date from 01.04.2013, i want to pay increased salaries with effective date from 01.04.2013 only.

      but only my concern is how can i change payroll area with effective date from 01.04.2013

      am unable to maintain this record with 01.04.2013.

      let say now this is may month

      they have announced that with effective date from 01.04.2013 few employees got promoted non management to management.

      now i want to revise the pay scale structure of respected employees with effected date from 01.04.2013.

      i executed promotion action action when changing the payroll area with effective date from 01.04.2013 it has not accepted because payroll has been processed.

      but i want to maintain it with effective date from 01.04.2013

      is it possible or not.?

      Please tell me.
