When Queen’s makes the transition to its new HR PeopleSoft system in December, departments will need to have people identified for certain key roles with specific access to the system. One is the role of a Departmental HR Administrator, who is responsible for processing decentralized contract hires for casuals, students or research staff.
Departments responsible for hiring casuals, students or research staff need to designate one or more individuals to take on the role of “HR Departmental Administrators” who will be authorized and trained to enter data using the new PeopleSoft System. A back-up is recommended, but not required.
Employees in this decentralized role (i.e. working outside the HR Department) will use PeopleSoft to enter data on hires, rehires and renewals. Some researchers may require this access directly when hiring their own research staff.
Those identified for this role will have read-only inquiry access to employee job data, and would also have access to position management data across the department. Please note that this includes confidential data as it enables the user to view appointment data for all members of their department (all employment categories).
