Introduction of a new Global Setting that prevents the rehiring of Employees, a specific number of months after their termination date.
Release date: 31st October 2019
Reason for the Change
Some customers do not allow Employees to be rehired on the system a certain number of months after they have been terminated, so the change helps to simplify this policy (if enacted).
All HR & Payroll customers.
A new Global Setting has been added in the HR Module where the number of months after termination an Employee can no longer be rehired can be specified.
- Go to HR > Administration > Global Settings > Edit Employee Creation
- Enter the number of required months in the box against Prevent Employees being rehired after x months

When going to rehire an Employee (see WFM - Rehiring an Employee), if the number of months specified in the Global Setting have passed since the Employee’s termination date, a message will appear to inform that they cannot be rehired.
