Full-time employees must attend an orientation session no later than 31 days following their first day of employment. The University’s benefit programs will be explained and employees will have an opportunity to enroll. Since a number of health insurance and retirement plans are offered, employees are required to make personal selections. Some of the benefit programs impose penalties on employees wishing to enroll more than 31 days following their date of eligibility. Orientation will be scheduled by the employee’s supervisor or the employee may schedule directly by contacting Human Resources at extension 4181.
