Onboard@Penn Reopens Its Doors
Onboard@Penn reopened its doors on Walnut Street for in-person operation on November 9. All new hires returning to work on campus can now visit the office by appointment only, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., to present Form I-9 Section 2 documentation in person. Remote service hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
When Onboard@Penn implemented remote operations eight months ago, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) granted temporary flexibility for new hires allowing them to complete the I-9 process virtually. This flexibility deferred the requirement to inspect original documents in person. This virtual process will continue for new hires working entirely remotely. Everyone else is expected to schedule an appointment at Onboard@Penn to present their original identification and work authorization documents in person.
When visiting the office, you will be required to present original Form I-9 Acceptable Documents and a green PennOpen Pass. You will also need to wear a face covering and practice physical distancing.
