Reproducing the Issue

  • Complete the New Hire Data Review for the Rehire Candidate
  • Complete Personal Data Collection
  • Rehire Verification is triggered, the candidate is hired with "Rehire with New Employment"
  • Candidates New Hire Data Review is triggered and completed
  • While completing Personal Data Collection, the initially entered information is not the same in this step
  • The values are loaded from the previous employment (inactive EC Profile)


  • The issue is caused because system fails to merge the data collected during PDC with the Old person record to avoid repeated data entry, post second rehire restart.
  • This is an issue which is likely caused amongst effective dated fields and not non-effective dated fields such as Dependents, Martial Status, etc.
  • This is a known issue which the Engineering Team is working upon.


  • The fix for the same is yet to be determined as it is currently considered as an enhancement being targeted for future releases.
  • Kindly follow the KBA for more details on the fix date.
