If an employee elects to not receive their W2 online, paper only, the W2 is also not available when using Payroll Professional responsibility. Payroll department can't view employees W-2 from the Payroll Professional responsibility and can't print them either

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Applied Year End Phase 2 patch
2. Some employee's are electing to only receive paper copies of their W2
