New Employees: Before You Arrive & Getting Started
Welcome to the University of Northern Iowa! We are glad that you have chosen to be part of our University family. UNI is committed to providing a diverse, dynamic learning environment and is characterized by excellence in teaching, scholarship, and service. UNI values putting students first and that cannot be done without hardworking, dedicated, and enthusiastic faculty and staff.
New Employee Paperwork
New employees must complete the required paperwork on or before their first day of employment. The employer verification section of the Form I-9 must be completed by the the employer or employer representative with the new employee presenting acceptable documentation to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States, in person, by their third day of employment. This should be done in the Human Resource Services office located at 027 Gilchrist. However, only when the new employee is not physically on campus to present the documents by their third day of employment, they may follow the instructions for remote completion of this paperwork.
New Hire Orientation - Staff
UNI Human Resource Services coordinates a new employee orientation program, which is offered to all new non-temporary Merit and P&S employees during their first month of employment. Preview the schedule of dates and the agenda here. You will be contacted regarding scheduling your orientation session.
