Ending/Extending Contract Workers

Contingent worker contracts should be ended by the manager as soon as the contractor stops working at Sysco. End dates are included in the initial set-up of the Hiring Contingent Worker (Contractor) process.

If a Contingent Worker stays longer than originally planned, managers can extend their contract in Workday. 

Make it a point to regularly review your contracts and end/extend them appropriately. See the Organizational/Position Management job aid for more about contingent contracts.

Beginning the Backfill Process Before a Termination

While you cannot hire someone into a position that has an active associate in it, you can start the job requisition process as soon as you have entered a future termination date (such as when an associate gives notice or has an upcoming retirement) and ensured that overlap was selected. Additionally this will allow for a temporary period in which the incoming and outgoing incumbents’ employment may overlap. To get started, search "Create a Job Requisition” in Workday, then select the “for Existing Position” option. Then choose the departing associate. See the Organizational/Position Management job aid to learn more about terminations and job requisitions.

Position Availability Dates

When you create a new position, you will select the date you want the position to become available. If you choose a future date, be mindful that a job requisition cannot be opened until the availability date you selected. See the Position Management job aid to learn more about creating positions.

Closing a Job Requisition without Closing the Position

Did you know you can close a job requisition without having to close the position? Simply go to the My Open Job Requisitions worklet and choose the requisition that needs to be closed. Then click the Actions button and select Close Requisition. The process will then be sent to your TAP for approval.

The position will remain in your organization for future hiring. See the Position Management job aid to learn more.
