New column =
var _min = minx(filter(Table, [Employee Name] = earlier([Employee Name]) && [Effective from] > earlier([Effective from])), [Effective from])

var _diff = datediff([Effective from], coalesce(_min, today()), month)
return Quotient(_diff ,12) & " Years " & Mod(_diff ,12)  & " Months"

@HassanAli123 , Try like

New column =
var _min = minx(filter(Table, [Employee Name] = earlier([Employee Name]) && [Effective from] > earlier([Effective from])), [Effective from])
return
datediff([Effective from], coalesce(_min, today()), month)/12.0
