I-9 Employment Verification Process

New Employees & Workstudy Students

Form I-9 is used for verifying the identity and employment authorization of individuals hired for employment in the United States. All U.S. employers must ensure proper completion of Form I-9 for each individual hired. This includes citizens and non-citizens. Both employees and employer must complete the form in Workday. The employee must also present to Human Resources their acceptable I-9 documents (see below) within 3 days of their start date.

Staff: After accepting an offer of employment, you will receive information via email on how to complete your new employee onboarding tasks in Workday. The onboarding tasks will provide basic personal information that will be processed through our employment verification system. You must complete and submit your I-9 documents within 3 days of your start date.

Workstudy Students: You will receive a notification if you are selected for a position. After receiving the notification, please visit the HR office on either the Oakland or San Francisco campus with documents to complete the employment verification process (I-9). Your job will also require approval by Financial Aid. Please note that you cannot begin working until you receive an email from Workday with approval to start your job.

Faculty: Please complete the I-9 task in your Workday inbox, then visit the Human Resources Office with your acceptable documents. This must be done within 3 days of your contract start date.

If you do not receive an I-9 task in your Workday inbox, or are having difficulty accessing Workday, please email or call Human Resources at 510-594-3700.
