We have an issue in HRMS application where in the "Latest Start Date" field in the UI is became protected(grayed out). We have the case where in one of the exisitng employee quit the comapny and now joining again as a Contigent worker. Following is the case.
Eff_Start_date Eff_End_date Status
30-JAN-2006 07-MAY-2010 Employee (Latest Start Date = 30-JAN-2006 )
08-MAY-2010 08-AUG-2010 EX-Employee (Latest Start Date = Null)
09-AUG-2010 31-DEC-4712 Contigent Worker (Latest Start Date = 09-AUG-2010)
Our HR Business Admin is created the last record (Contigent Worker record) by putting the Eff_Start_date as "09-AUG-2010". But the Contigent worker said he can able to join from "12-AUG-2010". So he(HR Business Admin ) query to date tracked to the last record (09-AUG-2010 - 31-DEC-4712 Contigent Worker ) and trying to change the Latest Start Date field from "09-AUG-2010" to "12-AUG-2010". But looks like this field is protected and he could not able to make the date change.
I am new to this application and not sure what needs to do to change/update the "Latest Start Date".
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for your reply. Can you please give me some more details. Is that the intent HRMS functionality that whenever you change the person types from Employee - Ex-Employee - Contingent Worker will this filed "Lastest Start Date" field will become protected. If that is the case, can you please let me know how to change the Start date of the Contingent Worker record from "09-AUG-2010" to "12-AUG-2010"(Please see the test case which I mention in my above post)
You may also see (Note: 1146414.1 - APP-PAY-06841 When Changing Latest Start Date Of An Employee Who Was An Ex-Contingent Worker). Please note that changing "Latest Start Date" for Contingent Worker may cause data corruption, so make sure you have the patch in (Note: 561304.1 - Changing Latest Start Date for Contingent Worker is Causing Data Corruption) applied (if applicable).
