Shan,
I think this would be easier to do without using any special date functions in db2.

Your query could be something like:
select employment_date from table where employment_date > ? and employment_date < ?

You can easily figure out the start and end dates in java (Calendar class.) It's platform independent and might also perform faster (being a simpler query.)

it is SQL function
1. select quarter(your_date_column) from your_table
2. select * from your_table where quarter(your_date_column) = 1

it returns 1-4
