Engineering team is investigating this behavior, this document will be updated soon with more information.

Workaround: In Admin Tools -> Company System and Logo Settings, disable the switch "Enable Centralized Services to Add New Employee, Add New Employee for Fixed Term, and Rehire Inactive Employee".
