Desiree Terrell
Senior Principal Technical Support Engineer

Dear Oracle EBS US, Canadian and Mexico HCM Customers,

This is an important update for any customer who currently subscribes to this North American Payroll World email distribution list. Due to changing technologies and platforms here at Oracle, the North American Payroll World email is being decommissioned at the end of this month (March 31st, 2021). After this date, legislative product updates and other critical product announcements that would have been communicated via the North American Payroll World emails will now be communicated via multiple channels on My Oracle Support (https://support.oracle.com/portal/).
This means that we will continue to communicate with you through the My Oracle Support Portal to highlight and identify any important updates that could have a legislative impact on the HCM Payroll product(s) that you are using for US, Canada and/or Mexico.

The following details the multiple communication channels that are available to you for staying up to date on the information that would have been distributed previously via this mailing list. While we would recommend all of the below listed options in order to stay informed, Steps A through C, at a minimum, are strongly recommended.

A. Subscribe to Hot Topics Email in My Oracle Support (MOS)
B. Mark Critical Documents as Favorites
