A Note on U.S. Holiday Release Scheduling

  • The 11/25/2021 product update will be rescheduled for 11/29/2021.
  • The 12/23/2021 product update will be rescheduled for 12/20/2021; this will be the final release of 2021. 


I-9/E-Verify

  • Section 2 U.S. Passport Document Number: Continuing to enhance the the validations around document numbers where we can.  When U.S. Passport is selected as a List A document, the maximum Document Number length that can be typed in the Document Number field is nine digits.
  • Section 2 U.S. Passport and U.S. Passport Card Issuing Authority: Valid U.S. Passport and U.S. Passport cards can only be issued by the U.S. Department of State.  We’ve updated the issuing authority of these documents to not be editable.
  • Section 2 Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551) Document Name: The Document Name for this document selection was missing the word “card” so we have added it in for extra clarity.
  • Section 2 Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551) Document Number: When Permanent Resident Card (Form I-551) is selected as a List A document, the Document Number must be entered in the format of 3 letters followed by 10 numbers.
  • Section 2 Alien Registration Receipt Card (Form I-551) Expiration Date: Alien Registration Receipt Cards are older versions of the Permanent Resident Card.  These older documents are still considered valid but may not have an expiration date.  We now provide a “Not Applicable” checkbox that can be marked when an Alien Registration Receipt Card without an expiration date is presented.
  • New Configuration for Section 1 Social Security Number: In a previous release, we made the Section 1 Social Security Number required, depending on whether E-Verify in WFM is enabled.  To accommodate customers that use E-Verify outside of Able, a new configuration has been created to make the SSN required in Section 1, independent of whether E-Verify is enabled in WFM.  This should only be enabled by customers using E-Verify.
