+1 for digging this up and for citing an explicit rule.

@Neeku I was struggling with "more commonly used form" (see above), and there (perhaps inconsistently) decided against hyphens :)

@Neeku Thx. I'm usually applying rules from The Elements of Style which (if memory serves) would recommend one (but not two) hyphens. (Any rule better be consistent :)

comment Word for “person that I supervise”
Do you work in IT (as in "my supervisee designed the front-end of the system ...")? I think the term may serve better in other contexts, but of course there may not be a definite "best" (counted or weighed :) answer.

comment Word for “person that I supervise”
IMHO this sounds definitely too old-fashioned for the indicated context. In a reference I would use the person's (first) name or refer to "my direct report", if necessary.
