First day tasks


Complete in HR:

  • I-9 form - (link works best with Internet Explorer) the purpose of this form is to authenticate both the employee's identity and eligibility to work in the United States. HR is required to have this completed form, along with copies of appropriate documents (see page 9) within 3 days of the first day of employment. The form must be signed in the Human Resources office with HR personnel and the copies of the documents must be made there as well, so please bring the original documents and the unsigned form with you.

  • Personal Identification Data sheet - this form is used for internal purposes only, in order to correctly set the employee up in HR's computer systems.
