Details for the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification: You will be prompted to complete the first portion of the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form as part of your onboarding tasks in Workday. The second portion of the form is completed when you present your original forms of identification in person at the Office of Human Resources (Churchill Hall, Room 159).  A list of acceptable forms of identification can be found on page three of the I-9 form.  Please note that if you do not choose to use documentation under List A you will need to provide a form of documentation from BOTH List B AND List C. Use this form to Schedule an Appointment with Human Resources.  No work can be performed until this I-9 form and the rest of the onboarding tasks are completed in their entirety.

Note: If 2a above applied to you (e.g. If you did not have an active student job at the time of the Workday implementation on January 1, 2024 and applied via the Workday Production - Student Jobs application), return to the OKTA Dashboard and remove the Workday Production - Student Jobs application from your selection.  If not already present, add the Workday Production application.  Now that you are a student employee, all future applications to student job postings will be done via the Workday Production application.
