You'd do that as a "validator" probably. There's a plugin module for workflow-functions, including validators.

The basic structure of one of those is a block of logic which would take the entered dates as inputs and return a simple true (pass) or false (validation failed) output, ideally with some text to explain what has failed.

There are a handful of plugins that already provide this sort of function though - see https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugin/details/5048 for one of them

There is one issue here! The validator check will not work for 'Edit' operation unless you do Edit also via a workflow transition. If you want it on Edit, you might want to do it using Javascript or check out the Behavior Plugin to see if it supports that.
