3463950 - Field Copy address from employee not showing in rehire with same employment


When rehiring an user with the old employment the field "copy address from employee" is not available for dependents if the employee did not have a home address saved in the profile. 


  • SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite 
  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Rehire inactive employee
  2. Select one user that does not have home address in the initial profile->Rehire employee 
  3. Add the required data and home address 
  4. When trying to add dependents data the field  "copy address from employee" is not available


Expected behavior. 


When rehiring an inactive employee with same employment the field  "copy address from employee" will only show for employees which have home address in the initial profile. 

Since we are rehiring in the same profile the dependents section will consider the data from the initial profile for this. 

The behavior is the same if we Accept Match from Add New Employee.
