New Human Resources Policies in Effect July 1, 2019

(July 1, 2019)

As part of the Human Capital Management Initiative and after careful review, Penn has updated many of its Human Resources policies.

Three new Human Resources policies go into effect July 1, 2019:

Time Reporting
Form I-9
Payments in Advance of Hire Date

These new policies, along with all the revisions, are available in the online Human Resources Policy Manual. They reflect the University’s ongoing commitment to organizational best practices, financial stewardship, transparency, and compliance with local, state, and federal law.

These changes will not impact faculty and staff members’ benefits eligibility, time off, and pay. Most changes are technical and administrative updates to existing policies; these policy modifications integrate Workday@Penn with University Human Resources operations.

If you have any questions about these new Human Resources Policies, please contact your Human Resources Director.
