USF - Gender Must Be a Required Field

(Doc ID 2320669.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 15, 2018

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Human Resources - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On : 9.2 version, Country/Government Specific - US Federal

Gender is currently not a required field in PeopleSoft. In addition, the "unknown" selection is an acceptable selection.
This goes against eHRI standards of just two valid selections of Male and Female.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Main Menu > Workforce Administration > Personal Information > Add a Person > Modify a Person
2. Gender field needs to be required
3. Gender field must only have choices of Male or Female for OPM Policy - eHRI standards
