Release Notes: 03/25/2022

Spring is in the air (well, Minnesota teased Spring) and the groundwork is being established for the latest E-Verify upgrade.

This release brings tax updates, plenty of fixes across TempWorks products, and the upgrade to E-Verify v31. Please make sure to read the note within the Highlights section as E-Verify services will be unavailable while E-Verify completes the upgrading process.

*Note*  1.) Upgrades involving E-Verify are time-sensitive.  You must update all TempWorks products as soon as possible on 3/25 in order for E-Verify integrations to continue functioning following the timeline noted below.

2.) For all Self-Hosted clients, additional functionality around HRCenter Email Templates is scheduled to release on 4/8/2022.

In order to utilize this functionality, you will need to ensure your API includes today’s release (i.e., the version is at least 3.2022.310).

If your API is not updated by the time this functionality releases, you will still be able to continue utilizing HRCenter Email Templates but you will be unable to add the additional customization options that are releasing.

3.) The login server requires a migration script- as noted at the bottom of this document.

The Highlights

E-Verify Version 31 Update

As of 3/25/2022, all TempWorks clients who were on E-Verify Version 30 are being updated to Version 31.

*Note* E-Verify services will be unavailable starting at 1:01AM ET on 3/25/2022 while E-Verify updates all clients to Version 31.

E-Verify is expected to complete the update process by 9:30AM ET on 3/25/2022 but additional downtime can be expected.

For all Self-Hosted clients, you will need to apply hotfixes as soon as possible on 3/25/2022 or E-Verify services will continue to be unavailable once the update has completed.
