2558261 - Rehire / Rehire with new employment: Error: The employee already has an active employment. You cannot add multiple active employments using the rehire transaction


  • Rehire creating a new employment allowed to create concurrent employment. Now you can create only one active employment via this option
  • When rehireing an inactive employee using the "rehire with new employment" option that employee doesn't disappear from the list of inactive employees. This allows to do additional rehires for this employee i.e. one could enter more than one active employment (like a Concurrent Employment CE))
  • When Rehiring an Employee, a Concurrent Employment is created instead!
