Form I-9 Instructional Videos Now Available

Attention: Principal Investigators, Project Representatives (who assist new hires in completing Form I-9), and New Hires

RCUH is pleased to announce the release of two training videos:

  1. How to Complete Form I-9 Section 1 (for Employee)
  2. How to Complete Form I-9 Section 2 (for Project Representative)

From the RCUH homepage, go to Training, then click on “Online Videos.”

The purpose of these videos is to assist Principal Investigators (PIs), project representatives, and new hires in completing the Form I-9 accurately. We hope you will find the videos helpful.

Federal law requires all employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States. To comply with this law, all new hires must complete Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, as part of the hiring process.

Please contact Jennifer Lin at (808) 956-7106 or jlin@rcuh.com if you have any questions or require further assistance in completing Form I-9.

eSign 2 – cancelled due to low enrollment

The State of Hawai‘i Office of Enterprise Technology Services (ETS) is offering an eSign training update to mark the service program’s 2nd anniversary. New and current users will be trained on new features, improved user interfaces, and integration with commonly used applications (e.g., Outlook).

What is eSign? eSign is a service that provides users with the option to route documents processed through RCUH (e.g., contracts) via email for electronic signature. Projects that have adopted it have been very pleased with the efficiencies it creates.

RCUH will offer a single live presentation at UH Manoa, Kuykendall Hall 101 (Auditorium) on Wednesday, November 29, 2017, 9:00-10:30 a.m. The session will be led by Micah Hwang of ETS. During the last half-hour, RCUH representatives will be on hand to respond to questions regarding applicability to RCUH transactions.

To register for the session, please click here. Registration will close on Friday, November 24. There is no handout for the session.

For those unable to attend, no recording will be available. However, a session via HITS will be scheduled in early 2018.

Should you have any questions, please email Gayle Hamasaki at ghamasaki@rcuh.com.
