Cannot move absence dates outside of a payroll period (Doc ID 1447338.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 29, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Human Resources - Version 12.0.4 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to update absence records with different dates the following error occurs.

"The absence start date cannot be moved outside the dates of the payroll period in which it was first created for non-recurring entries. Either keep the start date within the current payroll period (01.07.2011 to 31.07.2011) or delete the absence and re-create it using the desired start date"

Expected Behaviour
Expect to be able to change the dates without the error being generated

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps.

1) Employee Self Service > Absence
2) Select update button for an Annual Vacation Absence
3) Update First and Last Dates with an other month dates

Workaround - if any
Delete the Absence Entry and recreate it
