Invalid error message received when entering Maternity

When entering Maternity absence, an invalid error message is received when the start date of Maternity is later than the expected date of childbirth:
The absence start date is later than the expected birth date of the child. The absence start date must be on or earlier than the expected birth date.(HRX-1561779)

This is incorrect. The mother has a right to work up to the birth of the child.

The error doesn't occur when the Actual Date of Childbirth is entered as long as the start date is equal to or later than the start date of Maternity. This is also incorrect - it isn’t the start date of the maternity leave that is the variable. For example, if a worker works up to 5.30pm on a Wednesday (after the due date), gives birth at 9pm that same day, and starts maternity leave on the Thursday, that is quite ok. In this case the maternity leave will start a day later than the actual date of birth and would also error (see screenshot 2 attached - same error).

Seeded validation formula is being used - this is also attached - ORA_HRX_GB_MAT_VALIDATION
 

ERROR
-----------------------
HRX-1561779

The absence start date is later than the expected birth date of the child. The absence start date must be on or earlier than the expected birth date.(HRX-1561779)


STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
Suggestion: Please change the expected date of childbirth field to = 30-November and let us know the results?

The expected date of childbirth cannot be amended - it is provided on the MATB1 form the employee provides.

If I update this to 30-Nov, the absence WILL submit successfully.
However, we will be recording a legislatively incorrect date as the expected date of childbirth is used to derive the statutory payments and therefore
must be as stated on the MATB1 form provided therefore this is not a satisfactory solution.



BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot record absence for maternity up to date of birth of child.
