Benefited Employee Hire Checklist

Mandatory

__ I-9 - Due no later than your first working day or your reporting date.

The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 makes it unlawful for the University of Wyoming to hire any individual who has not complied with the law's verification requirement.  International employees MUST go to International Student Services (ISS), Knight Hall, Room 241, first before completing their I-9.  Complete Section I of the Electronic Form I-9 ON or BEFORE your 1st day worked by logging into HRMS Self-Service (Main Menu>Self-Service>Personal Information>Form I-9).  Once Section I of the Electronic Form I-9 is completed, you have 3 business days to complete Section II of the Electronic Form I-9, which is completed by HR at our office - located in Wyoming Hall room 139.  Please see the List of Acceptable Documents if necessary.  To complete an I-9 form, international employees must submit original documents that establish employment authorization (passport, I-94 and I-20).  For more information or questions, contact the Human Resources Department at (307) 766-5604 or jobapps@uwyo.edu.

__ New Employee Orientation

New Employee Orientation is offered twice per month for all new benefited UW employees by the department of Human Resources.  You will be given information and the opportunity to enroll in the health, dental and life insurance plans.  Orientation also covers your retirement plan options, sick leave and vacation accruals, safety and a number of different topics.

Who is orientation for?

Orientation is held for all new benefited employees. It is the official channel for you to receive insurance information and training required for all UW employees.

How do you know when to attend orientation?

Depending on your start date, your Employment & Staffing Partner will work with you and your hiring department to determine which orientation you will attend.

__ Retirement - Enrollment is due within 31 days of eligibility.  Eligibility is the first day of the month following the date of hire.

State law requires all benefited UW employees to participate in either the Wyoming Retirement System or TIAA-CREF. Since there is a choice of programs, employees must determine in which they will be enrolled and sign up accordingly. You can find more retirement information here. Employees may complete the enrollment papers during employee orientation or deliver them to Human Resources located in Room 148 and/or 150, Wyoming Hall, (307) 766-2437 or (307) 766-2438.
