Employee Central - Job Information

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to a Managers Personal Information.
  2. Make a change to their first and/or last name.
  3. Save change.
  4. Navigate to the Job Information of one of their direct reports.
  5. The Manager/Supervisior field still shows the original name of the manager and not the newly updated one.


  • The Manager/Supervisor field in Job Information, is maintained when the job information record is created and pulls the managers name from their Personal Information record from effective date.
  • When you make a change to a managers name in Personal Information the direct reports of that manager will require a new record in Job Information on the effective date of the change or after to see the updated manager name in the Manager/Supervisor field.
