Personnel/Payroll Data Sheet (PPDS) Guidance

-

Understand

The Personnel/Payroll Data Sheet (PPDS) form should be used for all employee-related actions, such as new hire/rehire and separation actions, appointment changes, salary adjustments, leave of absence (LOA) and return from LOA actions, and change of status actions. Below are instructions for common actions submitted for processing.  Refer to the PPDS Form Action Guide and the PPDS Action Reason Definitions for additional guidance. You will always receive a completed PDF version of the PPDS to place in the employee’s personnel file once the action has been entered into HRMS. Appointment letters are encouraged but are not required to be provided to DES HR unless you are increasing the salary of a SOSA position.
