  • 1.  LDExBEM_1.2.2020 - EmploymentContact Complex

    Posted 05-11-2022 12:28

    Hello,

     

    This post is regarding LDEX options to collecting Employee Contacts particularly related to Disability and Leave Management.

     

    Employee Contacts we collect are HR Representative, Supervisor, Benefit Coordinator and Manager.

     

    In the LDExBEM_1.0.2020.01.14 LDEX version, we can collected Supervisor and HR Representative Email.

    EmploymentInformation>HumanResourcePartnerEmailAddress

    EmploymentInformation>SupervisorEmailAddress

     

    In the LDExBEM_1.2.2020.12.04 LDEX version, the Employment Contact Complex Type has been added which includes: AdditionalReportingContact, BenefitCoordinator, ReportingManager, UnionContact

     

    Per the changes from 1.0 to 1.2, the below fields are being depreciated and will no longer be available for LDExBEM_2.0.2022.03.10

    • DEPRECATED EmploymentInformation.SupervisorFullName. Use EmploymentInformation.EmploymentContact.ContactName.
    • DEPRECATED EmploymentInformation.SupervisorEmailAddress. Use EmploymentInformation.EmploymentContact.ContactEmail.
    • DEPRECATED EmploymentInformation.HumanResourcesPartnerEmailAddress. Use EmploymentInformation.EmploymentContact.ContactEmail.

    The current system process needs to differientiate if the Contact Type is HR Representative, Supervisor, Benefit Coordinator and Manager.  While the 1.2 update benefits us with additional options of BenefitCoordinator & ReportingManager, we are losing the indication of HR Representative or Supervisor.

     

    Has anyone ran into a snag with this change and how was it handled?

    We can look at adding enumerations to the ContactType element to help with specificity. You've listed a few (HR Representative, Supervisor, Benefit Coordinator and Manager) are there any others we should review and consider?

    Here is what is currently under development, which will be going into Proof of Concept review shortly.

    <xsd:simpleType name="ContactType">
    <xsd:annotation>
    <xsd:documentation>Identifies the type of Employee contact. Added in Version::1.2.2021.08.30</xsd:documentation>
    </xsd:annotation>
    <xsd:restriction base="xsd:string">
    <xsd:enumeration value="AdditionalReportingContact"/>
    <xsd:enumeration value="BenefitsCoordinator"/>
    <xsd:enumeration value="ReportingManager"/>
    <xsd:enumeration value="UnionContact"/>
    </xsd:restriction>
    </xsd:simpleType>

    Hello Michael,

    Thank you for the quick response. For our purposes, we would only need the four listed.
     (HR Representative, Supervisor, Benefit Coordinator and Manager)
