Hi, the definition in SAP is The term 'legal person' is applied to persons or institutions that are given legal identity in law. In the SAP system, a unique legal person is assigned to each personnel subarea (V_001P_G). In the Organizational Assignment infotype (0001) employees are assigned to a legal person. If there is a change in an employee's legal person, this does not require a WPBP split, but means that two payroll results are created. Consequently, special treatment of the payroll result is required in some cases, for example, in the processing of averages or in loans.

I think the legal person is mostly used in concurrent employment, see below
