Updated I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form Released

 

On July 17, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) released a revised version of Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification.  By September 18, 2017, employers must use the revised form with a revision date of 07/17/17 N.

None of the revisions impact the completion of forms. For more details on the revisions within the form, please see the USCIS publication at https://www.uscis.gov/i-9-central/whats-new.

In order to ensure compliance by September 18, we ask that you begin using the updated version immediately. Downloading and using the current version from the HR Forms page for each new hire will ensure you have the most current version of the form. Forms submitted on an outdated version after September 18 will be returned and the new form will need to be completed.

We encourage you to complete the electronic I-9 instead of printing and writing in the information. This reduces the possibility of errors and hiring delays. If you’d like a refresher on the I-9 process or have any questions regarding the I-9, please contact Jenny Charapata in Human Resources at 920-465-2326 or charapaj@uwgb.edu.

 

Performance Evaluations – Non-Instructional Academic Staff & Limited Employees

Annual performance evaluations are a key component to employee performance and development.  The objectives of annual performance evaluations are to provide all employees and their supervisors an opportunity to:

  • Discuss job performance
  • Set goals for professional development
  • Establish objectives for contributing to the department’s mission
  • Discuss expectations and accomplishments
  • Discuss career progression eligibility

Non-instructional academic staff and limited employees and their supervisors should begin the performance evaluation process for the prior fiscal year (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017) as soon as possible. Please follow the procedure outlined on the Performance Evaluation Narrative Form, submitting the completed evaluation to the area leader’s office no later than Friday, August 25, 2017. Please note – An annual performance evaluation is not required for individuals hired after July 1, 2016 if a six-month evaluation has already been completed.

Part of the performance review process should be a discussion regarding changes in position responsibilities, appropriateness of the assigned title, and the eligibility towards career progression if employees are in a progression series title.

Per Regent Pay Plan Distribution Policy, compensation adjustments must be based upon merit and employee performance.  Therefore, any future pay adjustments will be contingent upon satisfactory performance.

If you are interested in receiving training related to performance evaluations, career progression and title change, and/or academic staff contracts, or have any questions regarding these processes, please contact hr@uwgb.edu or (920) 465-2390.

Are you messy or organized? Definitely organized

Best vacation you’ve been to? Any vacation is the best vacation.

Do you have a favorite newspaper, blog? The Atlantic

Do you have a favorite quote? If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.

Favorite travel spot? Our cottage in Nasewaupee, Door County

If Hollywood made a movie about your life, who would you like to see cast as you? Meg Ryan? Drew Barrymore? I do need to add that it wouldn’t be an Oscar winning movie!

If you could witness any historical event, what would you want to see? It would be interesting to witness my great-grandparents immigrating to the United States from Germany.

If your house was burning down, what’s the one non-living thing you would save? Photographs

Least favorite food? Pasta, melon, mushrooms. I’ll stop at listing just three!

Tell us a little about yourself. I grew up in Schofield, WI, the oldest of 4. My youngest brother was born on my birthday when I was 14. I graduated from St. Norbert College and have lived in the area since then.

Tell us about your family. I’ve been married to my best friend, Paul, for 26 years this month and we have 3 wonderful children. After graduating from St. Norbert, our oldest daughter, Kaylee, spent 27 months in the Peace Corps/Malawi and just finished her first year of graduate school at Marquette University. Our daughter, Micah, spent a year in Argentina during her high school junior year and will graduate from UW-Green Bay this December (after just 5 semesters!) with a major in Spanish & Latin American Studies and a minor in Democracy & Justice Studies. Our son, Gage, just finished his sophomore year in high school and will leave next month to spend his junior year in Cavalaire sur Mer, France.

Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us? I’ve never had a cell phone.

What advice would you give to recent new hires? Get involved with the variety of activities that are hosted by Human Resources and the professional development committees. Take advantage of using the Kress Activities Center.

What do you like most about your job? The interaction I have with so many departments on campus.

What is an ability you wish you had? To get by on less sleep.

What is your biggest pet peeve? The first that comes to mind is people who don’t use their directional when driving, or feel the need to stop at stop signs, or litter, or don’t know how to recycle…oh, I have so many pet peeves (is that a bad thing?!)

What one food do you wish had zero calories? I wish bakery had zero carbs!
