Entering a Rehire

PayServ Manual


The purpose of this task is to rehire an employee who has a record in the Payroll System. An employee can only be rehired into the same Company in a Terminated inactive record. If the employee is being appointed to a different Company, an Add Employment Instance (Concurrent Hire) is required. The rehire salary must be submitted by the agency and approved by OSC. It may be necessary to enter salary withholding information, additional salary factors, or contract pay information, as needed.

Helpful Hints

  • The rehire process updates the job information for the employee. The Agency should also verify that the employee's personal data is still accurate.
  • The Agency must have both the NYS Empl ID and the Social Security number in order to complete a Rehire.
  • With rehires, the Agency must verify that the Employee Tax Data pages, Direct Deposit page, and General Deduction Data page are still valid for the employee and change as required.
  • All Additional Pay earnings, except overpayments, are ended when an employee is separated from state service, therefore, regardless of the time off the payroll, applicable Additional Pay earnings must be restarted.
  • If the employee is in a position eligible for a salary withholding deduction and no days are held on the Salary Withholding Balances page, the employee must go through the salary withholding process, even if they previously went through the Salary Withholding process and were paid out those days in the past.
