Walk through upcoming ePAR upgrade, then see how to prepare

On Feb. 13, the Separation ePAR will transition to the Template-Based Transaction (TBT) framework to and give users access to functions and features that streamline business processes, help minimize the effects of vendor updates on systems and operations, and keep CU in compliance with Oracle.

Group terminations and termination business processes remain largely unchanged, and Payroll Personnel Liaisons and Transaction Approvers will experience no changes to their processes.

What’s changing?

  1. The SmartERP Separations form will no longer be visible.
  2. Instead of using the SmartERP form, users will click the Transaction Launch Page tile found under HCM Community Users in the employee portal.
  3. Users will use the Transaction Launch Page to initiate a Termination transaction and search for the person being terminated (search criteria remains the same). A new value, Termination, will be available in the required Search Option field. Termination can be selected from the dropdown list.
  4. Once a Termination transaction is entered, it will be routed for approval according to campus-specific policies.

Walk through the updates

Enter the criteria to find the employee who will be terminated, then choose the Termination option. Ensure you select the correct record to terminate. The record number is visible on the Transaction Launch Page after you search for the employee.
