2627298 - Employee Number sequence is being skipped while hiring a new employee

Symptom

Employee Number sequence is being skipped while hiring a new employee.

Environment

Employee Central - New Hire

Reproducing the Issue

Consider one of the mandatory field is missed and Add New Employee page is saved in the system. The system will throw an error to fill the mandatory field. In this case, when the page is saved, the number sequence will be generated irrespective of the error. Now, if the manadatoy field is filled and the page is saved, the sequence will be generated again and the previous sequence will be missed. The employee will be assigned with the new user id in the sequence.
