Why on attempting to create secondary classification we receive following error: "A record with this combination of values already exists" although it doesn't exists ?

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Payroll>Payroll Calculation>Manage Element Classification;
2. trying to create a secondary classification - "Benefits Employer Paid" under Primary Classification- "Employer Liabilities";
3. (even though there is no ‘Benefits Employer Paid’ secondary classification present for CA legislation) the system throws an error when trying to create

Below query doesn’t return anything for CA either.
select * from pay_ele_classifications_vl where base_classification_name like '%Benefits%Employer%'

Due to this issue, users cannot manage/ create element classifications.
