Get Hire and Termination Date

     It's not possible to get the hire and termination date within the one SQL statement above, but if you need them, you could extract them by running the following:

     SELECT Name, SSN, HiredDate as "Hired Date," ReleasedDate as "Termination Date," IsActive as "Active" FROM Employee
