HCM Updates

HCM170731.01 – Electronic I-9s are live in GMS.

The Electronic I-9 process is initiated through the Administrative or Student worker’s GMS onboading tasks and requires that the Hire transaction for the worker be completed in GMS before the Electronic I-9 can be initiated. Please refer to the New Hire Payroll Calendar for deadlines to process and onboard new hires. Although the Electronic I-9 is not part of the onboarding process for Faculty, the form can be completed by all workers in GMS (please refer to the Electronic I-9 job aid for details). Newly hired Faculty will be able to complete the I-9 Form both electronically and via paper form.

The electronic form through GMS will provide greater efficiency in our new-hire onboarding process by ensuring usage of the most current I-9 Form, enabling digital record keeping, improving reporting, and maintaining privacy of personal information.

For complete details on the new Electronic I-9 functionality please refer to the announcement from Human Resources and the Electronic I-9 Job Aid.
