From any Manager Self Service Transaction where Direct Reports can be selected, when clicking the "Find Employee" hyperlink loads a modal window search page.   

When clicking Return button without completing a search and then click on the Find Employee Link again a Field is required error is generated.

2. Click on the find employee hyperlink to display secondary search page.
3. Click on the return button.
