2487332 - Why is Seniority Start Date Defaulted From Rehire Date


When we perform a rehire, we notice that the field Seniority Start Date is automatically being populated with the Rehire date


Employee Central - Employment Information

Reproducing the Issue

1. Check the Seniority Start Date of a inactive employee

2. Rehire the inactive user

3. Observe that the seniority start date has changed to the rehire date


This is expected system behaviour


For new hires, the seniority start date field will have the same date as the hire date 

For rehires, the seniority start date will default from the rehire date due to the following:

A user cannot be rehired into the system unless they have been terminated. The system reads this as the user is terminated from the system and is no longer active

When rehiring the user, the system disregards the seniority that was built up in the previous employment and starts from scratch as of the rehire date
