Personnel actions affect the position and pay of an employee; thus, keeping SF-50 is important for future use, including employment, pay, and qualification decisions. If you are an employee and notice any errors in your SF-50, you must inform the Human Resources of the company you are working at immediately. It is your obligation to review all the information described in each item for accuracy.
