Hi,

How offen will the password change be asked.

Will this ask the employer a complex password.

it will not do any thing...unless you have vreated a group policy in which set password complexity and requirments etc.. so have a look at that..the root in group policy editor i think is...

computer configuration -> security settings -> account policies -> password policy

if there is nothing defined then nothing will happen.

The user will never be asked to change his password.

Yes, if it is unchecked, then depending on the group policy, it will ask to be changed when it expires.
