There are three types of PAR users:

  • PAR Requestor – point of contact in a local office with information relevant to employee job-data updates, may include responsibility for department-specific backup, responsible for timely responses to PAR push back from PAR Admin or HRIS.
  • PAR Admin – DHR Field Operations Representative with knowledge of Collective Bargaining Agreements, Policy and Procedure, required backup, and authority to push back PAR to Requestor for additional information.
  • PAR View – for those who need to know PAR status but do not require access to generate or manage PAR.
