2789689 - How is a Manager Termination handled for Future Dated Hires?


  • When a Supervisor is terminated, the "Transfer Direct Reports" section will appear on the screen and you can select from the list about who they will then report to:

Transfer Direct Reports - Termination.png

  • However, When an employee is hired with future date and the manager is terminated and becomes inactive in the system before the hire date, these Inactive employees still have terminated manager as their manager when their employment starts in the future.
  • SF is NOT listing Inactive employees whose employment starts in the future as direct reports when doing Manager Termination, So those employees are then not found on any managers team after becoming active.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. A new hire with a hire date of May 13th was entered into the system on May 4.
  2. Current manager will be terminated effective May 15th, Termination event was triggered on May 4.
  3. For the active/ existing direct reports, there was an automatic event reason for manager change (Supervisor change only) inserted under their Job Information portlet. However, for the case of the new hire who would be Inactive from May 4 - May 12, there is none. 


  • This has been identified by the Engineering
  • This is being tracked as an Enhancement request under : ECT-48062


  • There is currently no target release fix scheduled for this issue.
  • In the meanwhile, the workaround would be to correct the Supervisor details manually on the Job Info Record for the Inactive users.
