In this lesson, we’ll be focusing on personnel processes that can be created using transaction PA40. In particular, we will look at how to use PA40 to add a newly hired employee into the payroll system.
Hire an employee
A hiring action consists of a series of standard infotypes that are required for any country.
By using transaction PA40, it is possible to bring infotypes that need to be maintained in a customer and country-specific sequence. This sequence of infotypes ensures that all information associated with personnel action is stored as data in the system.
Some infotypes, such as tax data, are country-specific. If you set the user parameters for a particular country (such as 01 for Germany or 10 for the USA), the system accesses the appropriate personnel actions, which include all the relevant country-specific infotypes.
