Preparing for Your First Day

Upon your job offer acceptance, depending on your position, you should have received a welcome and congratulatory email from your department, giving you specific information about your new position and an overview of your first day.  HR provided you with the link to the New Employee Check-in webpage which holds the new hire documents that you are required to complete and provides links to the other new employee webpages as well.

Federal law and CSU policies require that your Employment Eligibility Verification forms (INS Form I-9) be completed no later than close of business on your first day of work.

To facilitate the sign-in process, please complete the online fillable documents in advance of your first day and bring the printed copies with you to Human Resources, Lindero Hall, Room 2801. If you do not have access to a printer, feel free to copy them onto a thumb drive and HR can print them for you. Blank forms are available at HR for those new employees who do not have access to a computer or would prefer to complete forms by hand.

You will also be required to demonstrate your identity and your eligibility to work in the United States in accordance with the Immigration and Reform Control Act. Acceptable documents that establish identity and employment authorization can be found on the I-9 Employment Eligibility Form in the New Employee Sign-In Packet. Please bring the required original documents with you on your first day.

What you will need to bring

  • It is required that your name and Social Security Number are reported exactly as stated on your Social Security card to the Internal Revenue Service and California Franchise Tax Board. This satisfies California State payroll requirements. To help expedite this verification processes please bring your original, non-laminated Social Security Card to your in-person sign-on. If you do not have your original card please advise us at the time of sign-up. Prior to completing the in person sign-in, you can request a new card from the Social Security Administration. Go to your local office.  They will issue you a receipt that indicates you have ordered your card.  Bring this with you to Human Resources. This receipt will allow us to have you start work.  However, we will not be able to process your paperwork on to Payroll until you bring back your card, once you have received it.
  • Documents that demonstrate your identity and your eligibility to work in the United States to meet legal requirements of the Immigration and Reform Control Act. Documents that are acceptable to provide employment authorization may be found here: INS Form I-9 Acceptable Documents (MS Word, 1.5MB) .
  • Your newemployee paperwork that you filled out on-line, or your thumb drive with your documents completed, so that Human Resources can print them out for you.
