12 Employer Website Enhancement #3: Track up to 5 additional jobs (two new Smart Forms will appear)New Secondary Job Set Up Smart FormEmployees can have jobs at multiple agencies. This smart form should be used when the employee has a job at a different agency that is PSR eligible along with your agency.Used to allow an agency to hire an employee who is now going to be working multiple jobs at a different agency.For example: Employee is currently working at a PSR only eligible agency on GaBreeze. Later your agency hires them as Flex eligible. You would use this smart form to enter the employee’s hire information.Since the participant is Flex eligible at your agency, your agency will become primary and the prior agency will become secondary.You would not use this form if the participant is transferring to your agency and will no longer be employed by his/her current agency. Rather, you would perform the same process you currently do today for Transfers.VARIABLE
13 Employer Website Enhancement #3 (Continued): Since the employee already exists on the GaBreeze system, you will encounter the screen below upon entering the SSN for your agency. This screen will be enhanced to read the following:“This employee is already currently working at another agency. If this employee has recently transferred to your agency, then you must work with the current agency to first process a termination of employment so that you can hire the individual into your agency. If this employee is still employed by his/her current agency and is now working another job at your agency that is eligible for PSR benefits, please click on the "Enter a New Secondary Job" link below to add the information related to his/her second position. For more details refer to the "Related Information" section on this page”Users may reset passwords to something familiar to them

16 Employer Website Enhancement #3 (Continued): The second new smart forms is…..Secondary Job Data Update Smart FormUsed to allow an agency to process updates to the secondary job they have an employee in—an example would be to terminate the employee from this secondary job or to update certain pieces of indicative informationIf you are a Flex only agency and the employee is working for your agency but it is not their primary agency because he/she is Flex eligible at another agency, then you would use this smart form to process any employee indicative data updates or to terminate employment when they no longer work at your agency in the secondary position.If your agency is primary for the employee, then you would NOT use this form to process employee indicative updates or to terminate the employee. Rather, you would use the Employee Indicative Data Update Smart Form or Termination Smart Form that you are accustomed to using.VARIABLE
