How can I update my supervisor?'
Employees can update their supervisor via myUM. The request is forwarded automatically to the appropriate Central Office and an email confirmation is sent to the employee, the previous supervisor, and the new supervisor once the record is updated. A copy of the confirmation email is also placed in the employee's personnel file.

How does the DHRS supervisor field gets updated?
The supervisor field can be updated in DHRS by:
  • Employee’s request via myUM: The request is forwarded automatically to the appropriate Central Office and an email confirmation is sent to the employee, the previous supervisor, the new supervisor, and the HR Liaison once the record is updated. A copy of the confirmation email is also placed in the employee's personnel file.
  • Departmental submitter/HR Liaison’s manual update via DHRS: The update can be done for a specific employee or for a group of employees supervised by a specific supervisor.
  • Employee moving/hire to a new position: Employees who transfer/hire to a new position will have the supervisor field updated based on the supervisor identified in the new position. In addition, if this new position has direct reports (employees supervised by the person occupying this position), the supervisor field for all the direct reports will now show the new supervisor (new employee occupying the position) as their supervisor.
