HCM: Legislative Customers Apply Mandatory Patches to Ensure Regulatory Compliance and to Maintain Your Supportability

Legislative customers have a key responsibility of ensuring their systems are in compliance with regulations and statutory requirements for a specific country. With the recent announcements regarding Lifetime Support Policy updates, it is a good time to remind you that the HRMS Suite of products has minimum required Rollup Patch (RUP) levels as well as additional mandatory patches that our customers need to apply.

These minimum RUP patches and other mandatory patches for your product or legislation are created with the following goals in mind:

  • Compliance: Manage the people in your organization within the requirements of a specific country
  • Supportability: Ensure you are on a common code base so that if problems are identified, patches can be readily provided to you
  • Reliability: Reliable code with multiple customer downloads and comprehensive testing.
