Ask the HR Expert: Overriding Default Values in PD Infotypes for Employee Events

There's a common misconception that the pay grade value entered in the Personnel Development side attached to a job or position is linked directly to the infotype 0008 on the Personnel Administration side. Actually, the only link that exists is one that allows you to have a value default on the infotype 008 screen during an entry, organizational event, or action.

Dear HR Expert,
Among companies that are using SAP’s organizational management functionality, what do HR organizations do to manage personal job grade overrides — that is, how do you handle it when a manager wants an employee to have a higher or lower grade level than what is assigned to the position and what defaults from the PD side to the PA side?
