2663142 - Hire Wizard allow to use an inactive Hire event reason

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Manage Organization, Pay and Job Structures you need an event which was inactivated (see example below):



  1. Now go to manage pending hires and select the hire date as 06/01/2017 (at this date the event in step 1 was still active);


  1. After selecting the event reason if I change the effective date to an actual date the event reason won’t be cleared and the system will let me save the hire using an event reason already inactivated;



Our engineering team was already notified about this issue and they are checking the root cause.
