"You cannot rehire employees before they leave"  error occurs while processing candidates in Manage Pending Hires step


SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding


Termination Date(end-date) field in employmentInfo succession data model is mandatory and a rule is configured in the system to set a default value for this field as per KBA-


When you set rule to default the mandatory end date field values kindly make sure Termination Date(end-date) value is not set in this rule. A custom value should never be set for this mandatory field under employmentInfo succession data model.

Once the rule is updated and this field is removed the issue will not be observed for future new hires. For existing new hires kindly create an internal ticket with list of all the affected candidates so that a backend script can be run to remove Termination Date field value for these new hires.
