(8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) resumed. Supervisors of staff who do not
have e-mail access, please inform them of this change.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW PARKING RULES: One of the major changes this year involves "visitor"
parking. Many of you may already be aware we now have a lot on campus
strictly for the use of visitors. The lot is adjacent to the north side
of the Gallagher-Bluedorn Performing Arts Center. For now, the lot
requires a valid visitor parking permit. Eventually, a park and pay
system will be installed in the lot, and a fee will be required. For
additional information about this new lot and some other changes
affecting visitor parking, please see:
http://www.uni.edu/unionline/public/119.html
--------------------------------------------------------------------
NEW EMPLOYEE REQUIREMENTS: As soon as an offer of employment (permanent
or temporary) is extended and accepted, the individual should be directed
to the HR office to complete a U.S. Department of Justice Employment
Eligibility Verification (I-9) Form and other paperwork. This should
be done prior to the employee beginning work, whenever possible, but
absolutely no later than the third day of work. New employees must
bring in certain documents that establish identity and employment
eligibility, which will be copied and attached to their I-9 form. To
obtain a list of acceptable documents, please call Human Resources
at 3-2422.
