Contingent Worker

Rathan is an Oracle eBusiness Suite Consultant, with extensive experience across various modules in Oracle Human Resource Suite.
In this article, he outlines the basics of Contingent Worker and also outlines the steps for creating Contingent Workers in Oracle HRMS.


1. Contingent Workers (Third party Staff) are the ones for who are hired through a vendor, for purposes like Cleaning Staff, Security Staff, Floor Staff etc.
2. Contingent Workers are the ones for whom the company does not run a payroll, but their names and identity are recorded in the system.
3. The vendors are solely responsible for the payroll of these Contingent Workers.
4. For a Contingent Worker the assignment Screen is disabled since he is of person type = "CWK" and their HR details are recorded in the system but assignment details are disabled.
5. They have very limited HR processes actually impacting them because most of the HR stuff are handled by the vendor themselves.
6. Real-time example " if a team has gone on client side to work say from India to Australia , these people are recorded in the client screen for issuing passes and accesses but the client does not run a payroll for these people so these people are contingent workers"
7. In applications you have person type = Employee, Applicant & other, Select "other" to create Contingent worker.
8. If you are trying to generate custom number generation for all Contingent worker , then in the fast formula include the clause " if person_type='CWK' then ,........." would generate your desired number. It depends on fast formula what kind of number you want to generate.

Keep watching, Rathan has promised to contribute more of his knowledge base via articles on Oracle HRMS Suite.

hi anil/rathan
i have a doubt about the fact of assignment being disabled for CWK Workers.I have done some work on CWK Workers for whom assignment was not disabled.yes the are not on the company's payroll but they too can have an active assignment.

Dear anil/rathan,
Thank you for your article.
I have tested this under vision instacne and i foud out that the assignment screen is opened but the payroll and the grade are disabled.
I think there is more for CWK regrading SSHR, procurement approval.
I would like to define them as employee and give a specific assignment category like contractor.
