PATH: Census > People > District Employment
The District Employment tab provides information on all current and past employees within the district or state.
A staff icon will appear next to a person's name if that person has a Staff ID. When searching for staff, use either the Quick Search Staff option or the Advanced Search settings. This will return staff members who have both a District Employment record and a District Assignment record.
A System Preference is available - Require Employment Record for District Assignment - that determines how District Employment records work in conjunction with District Assignment records. The Employment tab creates a district employment record; the District Assignment tab creates a school or building employment record.
Employment Editor information

A District Employment record is considered active through midnight on the entered end date.

District Employment Validations
A staff person cannot have multiple employment records within the same time period in the same district. For example, if a teacher has a district employment record that begins in September of 2010, a second employment record that begins in September of 2011 cannot be added.
The first record will not be automatically ended; however, a warning message will appear indicating that an existing employment record exists and that overlapping records are not allowed.
District Employment - Overlap Warning
This same message will appear when a user attempts to create an employment record that overlaps at any point and time with an existing record, even if the existing record is ended. For example, if an employment record with a start date of September 2001 was ended in May of 2010, a new employment record cannot be created that has a start date within those dates of employment.
