Before your first day

First day tasks

Complete in HR:

  • I-9-Form - (link works best with Internet Explorer) the purpose of this form is to authenticate both the employee's identity and eligibility to work in the United States. New employees complete this form in HR on or before their first day of employment. Employees are required to present original identification/employment eligibility documents in person. See page two of the linked I-9 document for a list of identification that is acceptable to complete the I-9 form. 
  • W-4 form - the purpose of this form is to determine the appropriate federal income tax that is to be taken from one's pay. Please set up your W-4 withholding in Banner using these linked instructions. See for further information on the W-4. 
  • Personal Identification Data sheet - this form is used for internal purposes only, in order to correctly set the employee up in HR's computer systems.
