Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Personnel Administration work center
  2. Go to Regular Tasks view
  3. Select tab Country XYZ (whereXYZ is the Country name)
  4. Under Hiring section, select Hire Employee
  5. Fill the Personal Data

  7. Fill the Employment Information
  8. Under the section Regular Conditions, fill the Agreed Working Hours with Month or Day as units of measurement
  9. Select Next
  10. System shows a warning message as mentioned above

Cause

Full Time Equivalent (FTE) is the Agreed Working Hours of an Employee as a proportion of the set Standard Working Hours for the company.

The FTE calculations for an Employee is such that whenever it is not given in Weeks, it is set to 1.

So, when Agreed Working Hours are provided in Weeks, then system calculates the FTE and whenever not provided in Weeks, it is set to 1.

Resolution

Provide the appropriate units of measurement while filling the Agreed Working Hours for the Employee.
