When an escalation redirects a worklist item from a user’s worklist, the worklist item is removed but other non-related worklist items may have been removed from the worklist as well. This occurs when unrelated process instances have a similar structure and are present on a user’s worklist at the same time. Since they are similar, they are removed with the redirect escalation.
