1892357 - Error Message "Action Not Possible; Transfer Records Exist For Selected Work Agreement" When Changing the Termination Date of An Employee

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Personnel Administration work center.
  2. Access the Employees work center view.
  3. Find and select the relevant employee.
  4. Click Edit.
  5. In the new screen, navigate to the Employment tab.
  6. Under Work Agreement, click the button Change Termination Date.
  7. In the prompt, set a value for New Termination Date.
  8. Click Ok.
  9. Review changes and click Save.


This happens because the employee has been transferred at least once during their employment.

Once a transfer record exists for the employee, it's no longer possible to change the Termination Date to an earlier date using the Change Termination Date button in the Employment tab.


For setting an earlier Termination Date, please use the following option:
  1. Go to the Personnel Administration work center.
  2. Access the Regular Tasks work center view.
  3. Select the Terminate Relationship with Employee option.
  4. Add the respective employee ID in the Employee field.
  5. Set new Termination Date under the Termination Data section.
