For New Employees

A Successful Start

As a general rule, UNC Asheville hires employees into regular positions twice monthly. At the beginning of each month, the Office of Human Resources provides a comprehensive two-day onboarding program for employees new to regular positions.

On your first day of employment, you will have an appointment with Human Resources. Among the forms you will complete is the Federal I-9 Form which will require proof of identification. A list of acceptable identification can be found on the here. The most commonly used proofs of identification are a government issued photo ID (such as a driver’s license) and a Social Security Card. All employees must present the original documents; photocopies cannot be accepted. If presenting a Social Security Card, please keep in mind that most Social Security Cards should not be laminated.

You will also be asked to complete the Federal W-4 and the NC-4.  These can be found on the forms page.

We require that you bring a void check for direct deposit of your salary.

Computer/Email Access

In addition to the above, Human Resources will introduce all new employees to OnePort, a web portal providing access to first-time email password creation and changes, employee leave reports, Web-Time Entry of timesheets, and tax forms.
