New-Faculty Checklist

  • Complete Workday* On-boarding Tasks (I-9, direct deposit, update personal information, etc.) upon receiving an email prompt from Workday.
    • The I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form (pdf) must be completed by your first day of employment. Please note: Section 1 of the I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form (pdf) must be completed in Workday. Section 2 can be accomplished in two ways, 
      • In-Person Method: Please contact us at or 781-736-4474 to set up an appointment; or
      • Remote Method: If you will not be on campus on or before your first day of employment, you must use the remote method. Remote I-9 Instructions outline the process for you, which involves sending us the notarized original documents and copies of the Acceptable Documents.
Please note that you cannot be added to the Brandeis payroll until you have completed the I-9 paperwork.

*Workday is the university system of record for Human Resources, Finance and Payroll-related activities. It is also the system to manage self-service functions, including updating personal information, viewing payslips, and more.  Job Aids are available to guide you through completing various tasks in Workday.
