The behaviour is per the current system design -

  • If a user is unassigned from their position due to a leave of absence or global assignment, they will still report to their existing supervisor.
  • If you change the leave of absence or global assignment start date for a user with the right to return, the start date in the Right to Return object is changed as well.
  • If a supervisor is unassigned from their position due to a leave of absence (LoA) or global assignment (GA), and the start/end date of the LoA or GA is changed afterwards, the hierarchy will not be reset with the new start date.
