1.   When Hiring a New Employee:

  • You as the Hiring Department must send the new employee to the Office of Human Resources (OHR) to complete the Federal Government's Immigration & Naturalization Services Form I-9.
  • It is a federal mandate that each new employee provide proof of identity and eligibility to work in the U.S. prior to start of employment.
  • If hiring a student employee, complete the 311T form, (Special Payments Payroll Authorization) for Payroll Office and refer to Student Financial Services for more information.

2.  OHR: Verification of Employment & Eligibility - I-9 Process:
