Step two of the orientation is completing the Electronic I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form (see your email from HR to obtain the employer code). Prior to your first day of work, you will need to complete Section 1 of the Form I-9 by using an electronic I-9 service.  Click on the I-9 link here: www.newi9.com to access the I-9 form. This confidential and secure service allows you to quickly and conveniently complete Section 1 of your Form I-9 online.   We recommend that you print the “Thank You” page to remind yourself to bring your required I-9 documents to the Greensburg Human Resources Office.

On or before your first day of work, you must bring to the Office of Human Resources (103 Lynch Hall) the identification documents listed in the I-9 confirmation section of the online I-9 form.  Section 2 of the I-9 form will be completed in the Human Resources Office by an authorized University representative.  If you have any issues completing your I-9 Form online prior to your first day of work, please contact the Human Resources Office at 724-836-9875.
