Employment and Benefits Information for New Employees

Below is information on employment and benefits and the associated paperwork necessary to be placed on payroll and enrolled in benefits.  The employment forms and required actions listed below must be completed by your first day of employment. Although you have 31 days from your employment date to return the benefits enrollment form, we recommend returning the form as quickly as possible so that insurance cards can be issued.  If you are unable to access the documents below, or you need them mailed to you, please contact Human Resources at (540) 458-8920.

You will receive your W&L login credentials/email after you sign and return the Confidentiality Agreement and the Computing Resources, Network and Email Use Policy forms below.  Your initial login credentials will be emailed to your supervisor who will share that information with you.

 Required Reading

It is expected that you read and comply with all policies and procedures found in the Employee Handbook available on our website at go.wlu.edu/employeehandbook.  Copies are available from Human Resources.  After reviewing the Employee Handbook, please print, sign and return the Acknowledgement of Receipt of Handbook found on page 2 of the Employee Handbook. Faculty should also read the supplemental Faculty handbook at https://intranet.wlu.edu/provost/faculty-handbook-2017.pdf.
