New Employee Orientation

All newly hired employees are required to attend and participate in the New Employee Orientation (NEO) administered by Department of Human Resources. During the NEO, the employee will meet with a representative of the Department of Human Resources and will be presented important information on the benefits available through the university, mandatory and optional payroll deductions, handling absences, parking, and employee rights and responsibilities. New employees are required to complete their Benefits selection within 30 days of their hire date. If new employees do not make election for certain benefit coverage within the first 30 days of employment, they may not be allowed to enroll or elect coverage under the benefit until the next annual open enrollment period. 

Current temporary employees changing from to regular full-time position must attend orientation within 30 days following the date of their change of status.
