Staffing The Onboarding business process has been updated to make the Edit Government ID (SSN) step required if employee citizenship is U.S. Citizen or Legal Permanent Resident, and optional if the employee is a Foreign National.
Also added a requirement that SSN cannot be the employee UIN nor can it be repeating numbers, such as 999999999.
