Creation of new employment status


We want to create new Employment Status similar to "0" - Withdrawn. This status should have same features like status "0". I have created a new status "4" and assigned the same to an action. However, the attributes of the new status "4" are not same as "0".

Eg: I have assigned the new status "4" to the termination action. When I execute this action the system updates the employment status to "4". However, I can execute a transfer action or pay change action on the same date of termination action. Ideally system does not allow 2 status change actions on same day. The system allows payroll to be run with the employment status as "4".

Please let me know of any missing configuration or anything I need to check.

      The standard payroll program is in coded in such a way that it doesnt pick employees with certain statuses (withdrawn for example), so when you create a new status the standard SAP programs do not recognize this new status.

      As for running two same actions on the same day MSN20 needs to be modified to set '4' and then assigned to the action type, please try this and let me know if it works.
