Employee records are important to your Human Resources and payroll systems. The information that you enter can be used to track employees and personal information, to write letters, and to print reports. It is important to keep up-to-date information to reflect your company's current activity.

There are three employee types: employee, contractor and work center. The work center employee type is typically not used in a human resources context.

For more information about work center employees, refer to Employees in shop floor control.

You can manage the following types of information and actions related to the employee and contractor employee types:
