Reproducing the Issue

1. Login to the instance.

2. Navigate to Admin Center > Rehire Inactive Employee

3. Select Employee > Populate required fields

4. Complete the Personal Information page

5. Proceed to Job Information page. You will then notice that the screen will display 'Loading...' and spins for several minutes.

A hard stop, application error will be displayed without errorId, you will not be able to continue the rehire process.


This is caused by an inactive object in the employee's profile such as Job Code, or Department, etc.


The workaround is to reactivate the affected object then rehire the employee.

After rehiring, you may revert the object back to inactive state.
