Cause

If Employee Central is enabled First Name, Last name and email address are synced from EC to EP and must be populated in EC - Personal Information only.

EP fields must be set to visible only and not required.

Resolution

Standard configuration is to populate these fields in EC only.

If you want EP to populate these fields then you have to set these fields to visible only and not required in EC.
