What is personal information? In most cases, it is private information about a person (employee or non-employee). Things like name, home address, birth date, and Social Security number are stored in PeopleSoft. This information has little or nothing to do with the job being performed. But it is necessary for processing checks, assigning benefits, and filing taxes. The principal personal data tables are shown in Table 6-1. These are the tables we will review in this chapter.
