HH.001.7 Process Absence Entitlement

User Acceptance Test Overview

The information below is intended to provide colleges guidance on performing a User Acceptance Test on the Hire to Payroll business process. This step in the User Acceptance Test process will be   executed whether a college uses TAM or not as each employee must be established with the appropriate absence entitlement. The term Absence Entitlement is a glamorous term for setting up an employee with the correct type of leave (e.g. sick leave, personal leave, etc.) for their job.

The high level flow for the Hire to Payroll process shows this step (HH.001.7 - Process Absence Entitlements) being executed concurrently with the other two steps (HH.001.5 - Manage Time and Labor Enrollments, HH.001.6 - Manage  Benefit Enrollments).  

The business process flow diagram for this step (HH.001.7 - Process Absence Entitlements) shows the 'next' step in the process as HH.001.8 - Enter and Process Absence Takes, which is the logical next step for absence entry, with the expectation that by test end, all steps HH001.5 - HH.001.7 are complete.  

The steps below are only part of what is needed to complete an end-to-end test of the full business process for hiring an employee and ensuring their data is ready to begin payroll processing. Coordination with other colleagues, such as those who manage hiring, benefit enrollment or process leave at your college in advance of commencing testing is key to success. In the same way that it doesn't take a single individual to operate the business of running a college it will require coordination across departments to successfully test a business flow from beginning to end.

The HH.001 - Hire to Payroll end-to-end test is considered complete when the job information, related time, leave and benefits are entered for the population of employees used in executing the test. The end result is employee data that will be ready and available for a payroll test. Actual execution of the payroll test is performed in a separate UAT HF.002 - Payroll to FIN (GL/AP).
