MA_I91_CorrectStatement is set to No or empty value


For Live Customer(s)

In New Employee Step of Form I-9 Employee Information and Attestation (Panel Name(Federal_I9)), the key MA_I91_CorrectStatement is auto-populated with a value of Yes which gives the system idea that new hire entered the information with his/her own knowledge.

There are scenarios where the data key is missing or have an empty value and it will trigger a message to corporate representative in Orientation Step "You have indicated that the information provided does not reflect your citizenship status."; the only way to resolve it is by manually adding the value "Yes" and this can be done by Support at the back end.

If you experience the said message in on of your new hires, please contact support and follow the template below.
