Reproducing the Issue

When applying eligibility rules from Plan Setup > Plan Details > Eligibility, the job details show an error message as well as the below message within the UI.

This is due to employee data being incorrectly formatted.

In most cases, when you define these rules for EC or non-EC employees the problem can be caused by the date fields being used.


Should you encounter this error message while applying eligibility rules please check all employee data and ensure the fields being used are correctly formatted.

For example, within the UI for non-EC rules you set a hire date to be = 12/30/2019 however in the UDF an employee's hire date can be 30/12/2019 or in order invalid formats like 30.12.2019.

When using EC business rules check the rule conditions against employee data in people profile.
