Employee Types Field Value Setup for Core HR

Employee Types are optional categories for which employees can be assigned. Common uses of the Employee Types include categorizing employees by Exempt/Non-Exempt, Union/Non-Union, Owner/Non-Owner, Field, Office, Regular, Contractor, or Intern.

If no values are defined, then the Employee Types drop-down menu for an Employee's Demographic Information screen will be blank.

If your Employee Data Import includes a field for "Employee Type", then you must define the Employee Type from the Employee Type page before importing your data.
