Apex Managed Sharing Error: Invalid share row cause

I'm trying to setup a Sharing Reason and I'm having some issues.


Here are the steps and conditions I'm working with.


1. I'm working in the sandbox.

2. I have a custom object with a default sharing setting of "Private"

3. On my custom object, I created an Apex Sharing Reason. I created it by going to Setup > Create > Objects > My_Object__c and then adding a new Apex Sharing Reason


Now, I'm getting an "invalid share row cause" when I try the following in a Trigger



Candidate__Share managementShare = new Candidate__Share();
			managementShare.ParentId = can.Id;
			managementShare.UserOrGroupId = managementGroup.Id;
			managementShare.AccessLevel = 'edit';
			managementShare.RowCause = Schema.Candidate__Share.rowCause.Employee_Sharing_Reason;
