Updates to State certified payroll system
From Jim Christensen, industrial statistician and program manager at the Department of Labor and Industries:
L&I’s Contractor Portal is now updated with increased validation plus a speedier filing process when filing/uploading certified payroll reports. These updates include:
- SSN validation. We’ve included additional constraints and validation on the SSN to meet the law as outlined in RCW 39.12.120, which requires the full 9-digit social security number of the employee. SSNs in the following format will not be accepted as per the Social Security Administration: Start with “9”, “666”, “000” or have “00” in positions 4-5 or have “0000” in positions 6-9.
- New Trade Notes field. This new field allows users to provide additional information about the work being performed to include the corresponding federal Davis-Bacon trade and classification.
- Updated XML Schema that includes more detailed descriptions and validations to help ensure your XML file is set up correctly and matches our system requirements. It also includes the new tradeNotes element, located after the jobClass element.
