New I-9 Notifications
There is a new notification system that employees will be receiving who need work authorization to be employed at UNC Health Care. The old process was to receive a call or email from the Recruitment Office. Now the HRx system automatically sends an email—at 6 months, 2 months, 1 month, 7 days, and 1 day before it is due.

For questions, please contact Kim Haynes in the Employee Recruitment Office at 919-966-5475 or khaynes2@unch.unc.edu.
