All date fields in the HESA Staff record must be completed using the ISO8601 format of YYYY-MM-DD.
This field must be updated when a break in continuous service occurs regardless of the length of the break.

For records where this data is required and in the small number of cases where the Person.DATEFHEI is not known an empty element should be returned with the ReasonForNull attribute set to 1 (not known) e.g.
