Data Change Request: Voluntary Reduction or WC Works Part-Time

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.

This transaction will place the employee on the Voluntary Reduction program. Eligibility is based on the employee’s bargaining unit. The only eligible work percentages are from 70-95% in increments of 5%. Edits and messages will appear as needed. In order to remove the employee from the program and return them to 100%, use a Data Change/Change Percent Full request.

This transaction will allow the agency to reduce the employee’s work percentage due to a worker’s compensation incident when the employee is working part time and the State Insurance Fund is also compensating the employee for the lost wages.

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.
  • Some Data Changes may be automatically approved based on meeting the editing and approval criteria. Data Changes will only be automatically approved if the Effective Date of the change is after the latest Effective Date on the Job Data record and before the Effective Date of any open request.
