3080831 - When is a candidate eligible for Rehire? - Onboarding


Inactive user in Layoff status does not trigger Rehire Verification. When is the candidate eligible for rehire verification in Onboarding? 


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding


  • Onboarding only supports rehire for terminated candidate.
  • If the status is anything apart from terminated, that will not be considered for rehire


  • Since the Rehire process in Onboarding can only be done for terminated employees, if Employees are Layoff status, they are still active employees and not terminated. So this is not a rehire scenario.
  • The rehire match does not show active employees and only shows terminated employees and hence these users would not be listed.
  • Candidate would be applicable for Rehire via Onboarding only after the end-date/termination date is passed for the user. For future dated termination rehire, we have an enhancement request already created 284318.
