  • I-9 verification is easier than ever
  • Wrap Report give you an in depth review of your project’s payables

Agent Fees

Agent fees can now be added to any employee added to a project. You can select agent fees of 10, 15 or 20%.

When specified these agent fees will automatically be calculated and provided in the breakdown of wages on each timecard and pay stub. It’s never been easier to track and manage how talent is getting paid and how payments split to agents.

I-9 completion got faster

I-9s are now faster to fill out for both workers and I-9 verifiers.

Wrapbook guides workers through a process of identifying employees legal working status in the United States.

Wrapbook uses all employment data that is entered when onboarding into the system to pre-fill an I-9 document for workers. Workers now need only to take only 5 seconds to review their information & digitally sign an I-9.

Company admins look over a completed and filled I-9’s & and review a physical identification documents provided to them in-person. The I-9 process takes only a few seconds to sign and confirm that the information is valid.

All subsequent times that an employee needs to fill it out an I-9, all pertinent information that was previously entered into Wrapbook will be present and prepopulated. All an employee needs to do is verify that they’re up to date & click 1 button to sign the document & get back to work.

Wrapbook now stores your worker's work authorization to their profile & pre-fills their I9 for them
