Rutgers University has issued a statement for all UMDNJ Legacy employees to complete their I-9 forms. Members have raised concerns that completing these forms would change their start date with the University. HPAE has been assured by Labor Relations that the I-9 form request is solely to update the computer systems to remain in compliance with mandated regulations. Your start date with the University will not be affected by completing the form.
Employees have been instructed on which day to report to an assigned location to complete these forms. Members who have completed this process have reported that the start date of employment is preprinted as July 1, 2013. As per Labor Relations, this date will not change your start date of employment and merely “reflects when [you] officially became Rutgers employees for I-9 purposes only”.
If you have any further questions about the I-9 form, please contact your Union representative.
