Data Change Request: Correct History (COR)

PayServ Manual


Data Changes are changes that relate to an employee's Job Data. These changes are separate from an employee's appointment, removal, position or pay rate change transactions. All Data Changes must be submitted through the request process.

Data Change, COR (Correct History) is used by the agency to request changes to an employee’s record that the agency cannot do. An agency cannot enter any job status action to the job data page that is retroactive to the last or most current effective dated row on the Job Data page. An agency cannot change any existing row on the Additional Pay page. The agency must submit a request to OSC staff to make these changes. Changes needed to the employee’s record due to Worker’s Compensation Award must be requested through a Data Change Correct History.

Retroactive pay changes and position changes must be done using the Job Action Request page, regardless of the effective dates. Subsequent effective sequence numbers are used to add changed information for any prior rows.

Helpful Hints

  • All Data Change requests must be submitted on the Job Requests1 page.
  • The Action Reason automatically opens the required fields to process a Data Change transaction.
  • For Data Change COR no fields will open.
  • The Status Reason Comment field must be filled in with the requested action.
  • The Data Change COR will never post. The requested change will be processed on the appropriate page, and the Data Change COR request will be Denied once completed.
