"Error in Job Information: The new start date must be greater than or equal to the first job record creation date."

Environment

Employee Central - Dependents

Employee Central - Job Information

Reproducing the Issue

Go to Job history of the employee an with the error and make note there is no hire record.

Cause

This error typically appears when you are trying to change/add job information record while employee's imports have not been completed and his profile is not complete in EC. That is, there is no hire record for the employee.

Resolution

Import the job history of this employee with event hire/rehire to be able to use MSS/ESS action on this employee and add more job information.

The hire process can be completed either via UI add new hire wizard or via imports. If import is incomplete (minimum imports are not done or not done in proper order) then you cannot use UI to finish rest of the data, you need to complete rest of the data (at least first records) via import only.

Below are the basic minimum imports required for creating a user in EC, in exactly same order:

Perform these imports in the order mentioned below.
1. Basic Import
2. Biographical Information Import
3. Employment Details Import
4. Job History Import
5. Compensation Info Import
