New security requirements

UKG has a number of new security requirements that will impact you and your system users. 

New requirements include: 

  • A minimum password length of 15 characters for all users
  • More frequent prompts asking users to verify their identity
  • Mandatory use of an authenticator app or voice verification (automated phone call) for users with access to more sensitive information, such as other employees’ data. 

Note: While SMS text and email verification will remain acceptable two-factor verification methods for some users (depending on their access levels), we highly encourage all users to transition to voice verification or ideally an authenticator app.

Avoid Labor Law Poster Fines

If you have one employee or more, you are required to post federal, state, and in some cases, city and county labor law posters. If you haven’t updated your posters for 2023, you’ll need to do so.

To stay on top of this each year, we recommend signing up for E-Update Service, which includes:

  • Annual delivery of a laminated all-in-one state and federal labor law poster (S&H including)
  • Updated postings sent via email for you to print and post (includes mandatory or recommended federal, state, city and county compliance changes)
  • Protection in the event of a government fine or penalty up to $25,000

To learn more, contact your client service representative (CSR) and/or download our E-Update Overview Sheet.
