Acquiring a field from user picker

I am trying to grab additional information into a variable as the user picker does not have the values I need. We have a value we are grabbing called "Employee_ID" which is in the user database.


I don't believe I can modify the user picker selections so I am looking for a way I can pass such information into the form as we are having the user (Human Resources) validate the employee id and update if necessary (going through a merger).  They want a form to do this in so I will have it go through a workflow afterwards.


I am trying to do something like ${avform.ManagerSelect.Employee_ID} and we do have that attribute valid and populated under user.  When the form loads and a manager is selected it just says it's not valid.


Is there a way to acquire additional information from the user that is selected from their record?
