Chapter 1 – Security Notes

All communications between your PC and the ROH Data Gateway application will be encrypted. This behaviour is built into your browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox) and will be automatically invoked when you connect to the ROH Data Gateway application.

Ensure that you are connected to the ROH Data Gateway application by being familiar with the information contained in this document; in particular, verify that the site you are connected to:

  • uses the "https" protocol; i.e. the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) or internet address starts with https://;
  • presents the screens as displayed in this document;
  • presents the Department's Server Certificate as described; and
  • functions in a fashion consistent with that described in this document

Your User ID and Password are an important part of ROH Data Gateway application security.

  • It is essential that the User ID and Password knowledge be restricted, both within your organization and at the Department. If compromise is known or suspected, the User ID and Password must be changed immediately. Use the Change Password function of the ROH Data Gateway application to accomplish this.
  • User IDs and Passwords are verified and a record is kept of who connects, when, for how long, and what files were accessed.
  • Your User ID and Password is your "account" as referred to in the "Authorized Users Only" statement on the Login page (see Figure 3).

Field Insert Procedures and Business Rules:

Social Insurance Number

Description:

Social Insurance Number of a person being newly hired or recalled by an organization.

Business Rules:

An error message will be displayed if the Social Insurance Number violates any one of the following business rules:

The Social Insurance Number is mandatory.

You must enter a nine digit numeric value.

The first digit (position 1 from left to right) of the Social Insurance Number must not be 0.

The Social Insurance Number value must fulfill the conditions of the MOD10 check.

First Day of Actual Employment

Description:

Represents either the first working day of the newly-hired employee or the latest return to work date for the recalled employee.

Business Rules:

The first day of actual employment is mandatory.

You must enter a valid calendar date in the format YYYY-MM-DD or YYYYMMDD. You can either enter a date or click the calendar icon to the right of the field to select a date.

Note: It is not necessary to enter the two "-" in the date. If the two "-" are not entered then when the page is submitted and subsequently refreshed, the two "-" will be automatically inserted in the date value.

The date cannot be in the future or more than 6 months old.

Badge or Payroll Number

Description:

A badge or payroll number that is used by some organizations as an additional method of identifying their employees. Its purpose is to help the organization trace an employee's payroll file when he/she receives a Request for Payroll Information from Service Canada.

Business Rules:

The Badge or Payroll Number is optional however if a value is entered then the maximum length cannot exceed 15 characters.

Other Hirings and Recalls Transaction Business Rules:

  • It is possible for more that one organization to hire or recall the same person on the same day or on a different day (same SIN and First Day of Actual Employment or same SIN but different First Day of Actual Employment). As a result you can enter the same or similar hiring or recall transaction for more than one organization.

Note the following example:

A hiring or recall transaction is entered for BN 123456789RP0001 with a SIN value of 123456789 and First Day of Actual Employment value of 2008-08-01.The hiring or recall transaction will be accepted because no previous hiring and recall transaction exists with the same values for this organization.

Another hiring or recall transaction for a different organization (for example: BN 888888888RP0001) is entered with the same SIN and First Day of Actual Employment values as BN 123456789RP0001. The hiring or recall transaction for BN 888888888RP0001 will be accepted.

Another hiring or recall transaction for a different organization (for example: BN 888888888RP0001) is entered with the same SIN but a different First Day of Actual Employment values as BN 123456789RP0001. The hiring or recall transaction for BN 888888888RP0001 will be accepted.

  • It is not possible for the same organization to hire or recall the same person on the same day more than once (same SIN and First Day of Actual Employment). As a result, you cannot enter duplicate hirings or recalls for the same organization.

Note the following example:

A hiring or recall transaction is entered for BN 123456789RP0001 with a SIN value of 123456789 and First Day of Actual Employment value of 2008-08-01. The hiring or recall transaction will be accepted because no previous hiring and recall transaction exists with the same SIN and First Day of Actual Employment values for this organization.

However, if another hiring or recall transaction for the same employer is entered with the same SIN and First Day of Actual Employment values, the hiring and recall transaction will be rejected.

  • You can enter a hiring or recall transaction that has the same Social Insurance Number but a different First Day of Actual Employment as a previous hiring or recall transaction for the same organization, as long as the First Day of Actual Employment is not within seven calendar days before or after the previously reported hiring or recall.

Note the following example:

A hiring or recall transaction is entered for BN 123456789RP0001 with a SIN value of 123456789 and First Day of Actual Employment value of 2008-08-01. The hiring or recall transaction will be accepted because no previous hiring and recall transaction exists with the same SIN and First Day of Actual Employment values for this organization.

Another hiring or recall transaction for the same employer is entered with the same SIN value, but with a First Day of Actual Employment value of 2008-08-04. The hiring or recall transaction will be rejected because the First Day of Actual Employment is within seven calendar days of the previously reported hiring transaction.

Another hiring or recall transaction for the same employer is entered with the same SIN value, but with a First Day of Actual Employment value of 2008-08-20. The hiring or recall transaction will be accepted because the First Day of Actual Employment is not within seven calendar days of the previously reported hiring or recall transaction.

Once you have clicked the Submit button the Enter Hirings/Recalls page will be refreshed and the following will occur:
