The Regional Onboarding Teams will continue to provide service to the Berkeley campus with the understanding that most staff will be working remotely. As such, individual onboarding appointments to verify work authorization documents will be performed remotely as well. Here are additional details around onboarding:
Simply speaking, all new hire/rehire paperwork is completed remotely through an online process that includes an improved DocuSign packet (which includes the Patent) and individual video appointments for work authorization verifications (e.g., Form I-9, state oath, etc.).
Should this landscape change based on the Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement directives, BRS regions will advise their departments.
In-person Benefit Orientations are also suspended at this time.
