2538665 - Ok to Rehire Error at the Final Stage of Rehire Workflow - Employee Central


The error "The employee has been marked as Not Ok to Rehire, please update employee details to rehire".



  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central - Hire / Rehire


Based on the latest system behavior, transactions for terminated/inactive users with “Ok To Rehire” = No will not be saved.

  • When you click on “Save” after completion of Compensation Information portlet in the rehire process if there is no workflow.
  • When the final approver tries to approve the rehire workflow if a workflow is involved.


If there is an existing Rehire workflow, as a solution, please withdraw/reject the current workflow if it's there. Change “Ok To Rehire” = Yes for the terminated employee in his Termination Details record and reinitiate the rehiring process.

If there is no Workflow, then you need to update the Termination Details and set the value to Yes.


The validation is currently expected to occur at the final save of the Rehire. We have an open enhancement to change this behavior, however we do not yet have an exact timeline as when this will be deployed/enhanced for a specific version.
