9.2 Run a Search Match

Purpose:  Use this document as a reference to search for an existing Employee ID (Empl ID); to avoid duplicate entries in ctcLink.

Audience:  Human Resources Specialist.

Search Match Functionality is used during the New Hire business process to verify an EMPL ID/SSN does not already exist in either the HCM or Campus Solutions environments prior to the Hire.

Therefore, it is important that you do not skip this search/match process in order to prevent multiple Empl IDs for one employee. Note that personal data is not visible for verification until after the Hire process has been completed.
