Sometimes hybrid events are okay. The first step is to research the two events that combined. When two events combine, Workday includes all the benefit types from EITHER event and takes the EARLIEST effective date from either event (in other words, they try to be “generous”).
First, look at the reference guide Benefit Events and Explanations to determine the behavior of each of the events. If they are the SAME, or if the end result of the change is acceptable, then you can leave the hybrid event as-is.
If the hybrid event will result in the wrong effective date, you should CANCEL or RESCIND the hybrid event and trigger the two events separately on DIFFERENT DAYS.
Some examples of events that are OKAY to leave as hybrid events:
Loss of Other Coverage & Gain of other Coverage
Loss/Gain of Other coverage & Loss/Gain of other coverage – coverage on event date (will take earlier date)
Marriage & Marriage – Coverage on Event Date (will take earlier date)
Some examples of hybrid events that are NOT OKAY:
TRS & ORP
Hire – Benefits Effective First of Month Following 60 Days & any other Hire benefit event
Job Change and any other benefit event
Cause: If two or more benefit events are triggered on the SAME DATE with coverages in common (ex. Basic Life), Workday will combine them into one event.
