Currently we do not have complex password enabled.  However, when we do enforce it, will this cause users that do not meet the complex requirment to change their password immediatley. Or does it go in to effect the next time they are require to change their password.   My concern is if we enforce this policy our help desk will receive an increase in calls regarding password change for that day that we have them change it.    

Thanks

The *complexity* of existing passwords can not be checked, so existing passwords won't be affected.
But a password *expiry* policy will immediately expire all passwords that are older than the allowed age (except for accounts in which the "Password never expires" option is active).
