Managing New Hires

New employee orientation, a full-day event, typically occurs on the first and third Monday of every month. A welcome e-mail that includes the event location and vital payroll and benefits information is sent to each new employee once their department registers them for orientation.

It is best to have a new employee start work on the day of an orientation session (see the schedule below). If a new employee does not start work on a scheduled orientation day, it is the responsibility of the department to have the individual complete the I-9 form on the first day of work and verify eligibility for employment by the end of the third business day of work.

Before attending, new employees need to review the New Employee Orientation site, which includes information and forms they will be required to submit at orientation. Those who bring completed forms to orientation will be able to leave the session earlier.

Please note: These orientations are also appropriate for new faculty. Those whose positions begin at the start of the academic year should attend the New Faculty Orientation in late August, but those starting at other times of the year would benefit from attending these sessions.
