> The constraints are driven by
the organizational policies. If the organizational policies require that
employees must be over 16, then they need to be enforced.
That's precisely the assumption I was complaining about. If
the MD of your subsidiary in Egypt tells you that he has just hired a
14-year-old tea-boy, then in most organizations that I know of it's not the job
of the IT department to tell him he shouldn't have done that: IT is the servant,
not the master. When the crunch comes, the tea-boy won't be fired (and even
if he is, the IT system will have to record the fact).
The way to enforce an organizational policy on recruitment
is by having a process for approving all hiring of employees, not by restricting
the capabilities of the employee database.
