CAML Query - People Picker Field - _ ALSO trigger when selection is made using SharePoint

I am working with an SPServices call and CAM Query. Trying to do a filter against a value in a People Picker field in SharePoint 2007.

I am continually getting an error on the execution of the Query no matter how I set up the parameters for the People Picker field. Please advise what I need to change. I need to filter against the current value in the People Picker input area.

A second issue is that I can have the code trigger when a value is manually entered into the input area but it won't trigger if the actual People Picker is used.

here is current code

function EmployeeCheck() {	
    //Setting variables
		ShowDialog = false;
		

        EmployeeID = $('textarea[title="People Picker"]').val(); 

		//Setting the CAML query
  		SPCAMLQuery = '<Query><Where><And><And><Includes><FieldRef Name="Field_x0020_Employee_x0020_Name" /><Value Type="Text">' + EmployeeID + '</Value></Includes><Geq><FieldRef Name="Date_x0020_of_x0020_Observation" /><Value IncludeTimeValue="FALSE" Type="DateTime">2014-01-01</Value></Geq></And><IsNull><FieldRef Name="Observation_CanceledReason" /></IsNull></And></Where></Query>';

Hi,
the people picker is quite tricky - as the HTML DOM beyond from what you see in the browser is quite complicated.
But the following should exactly retrieve the displayed value:
jQuery("textarea[title='People Picker']").closest("td").find("#content").text();

Open in new window

For the second issue:
How have you implemented the triggers?
But perhaps the second one is worth an additional question.

Thanks and HTH
