Can't use specific dates because of "Illegal instant due to time zone offset transition" (daylight saving)

We have been unable to use dates that coincide with a Illegal instant due to time zone offset transition.
We have logged this problem on JIRA since Apr 2018 with no updates since then.
We are not able to set a birth date or a date for event/enrollment on dates that fit the criteria of being on a daylight saving transition.
Please advise!
