TrustID Fourth Cloud app will change to allow Right To Work (RTW) checks for current employees, in addition to job applicant RTW checks.
Proposed Release Date: 6th August 2020
Reason for the Change
Currently, the TrustID app only allows a user to carry out a check for job candidates in the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) in conjunction with the applicants’ application ID number. This does not allow managers to carry out ongoing RTW checks for existing employees. In order to enable checks for existing employees, there will be some changes to the TrustID app.
All ATS customers using TrustID.
TrustID will add an additional piece of functionality that will allow managers using the app to carry out ongoing RTW checks. On the page where the application number is normally added, the employee number can now also be added.

No other changes have been made on how to conduct the RTW check. An article on this can be found here: WFM - Conducting a Right to Work Check within the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) using the TrustID App.
The ongoing RTW checks using the employee number will not be sent to the ATS. They are stored in the TrustID app. To access the right to work documentation, go to:
- Fourth Engage > TrustID app > My Scans (or All Scans for users with a higher permission access) > Select the applicable RTW check > PDF

The PDF version of the certificate will need to be manually downloaded. Select the Download icon > Save.

Please note: Scans are only stored for 90 days in the app. If the certificate is not downloaded within that time you will have to repeat the RTW check.
Adding the Certificate to the Employee’s HR record
To add the certificate to the employee record, go to the HR & Payroll system:
- HR module > Employees > Employee List
- Search and select the relevant employee

- Go to Employee Info > Document Management > Upload a new Document

- Select the appropriate Document Type category from the drop-down
- Select Choose File and select the certificate to upload
- Notes can be added but are not required
Please note: The document management category Right to Work which is used by the ATS for new employees cannot be used for the manual upload and therefore is not visible in the Document Type drop-down.
Action Required (if applicable)
Please communicate the changes to TrustID to the relevant users of the app to ensure there is no confusion around how RTW checks are completed for current employees.
If currently using a separate TrustID account to conduct right to work checks for existing employees, Fourth recommends to discontinue the account. Customers are advised to contact TrustID to terminate any additional user accounts to avoid maintenance of two separate accounts.
