IMPORTANT NEWS AND UPDATES
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) each state is required to create and maintain a health insurance exchange by Jan. 1, 2014. Health insurance exchanges will serve as a health insurance marketplace where individuals and small businesses may purchase health plans if there is no employer-sponsored health plan or if the employer-sponsored health plan is unaffordable or fails to offer essential health benefits.

Information on new I-9 Forms:
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced that there is a new I-9 form available for use effective immediately. The old I-9 form will only be accepted until May 1, 2013. Human Resources has the new I-9 form on the HR website at http://www.unco.edu/hr/forms along with the instructions and a Power Point Training. Additional information and webinars can be found at www.uscis.gov/I-9Central.
Human Resources will not accept the old I-9 form after May 1, 2013. It is very important for departments to purge old forms and use the HR forms found at http://www.unco.edu/hr/forms. This screen will always have the most updated forms for the campus to use.
Questions can be directed to Human Resources at 970-351-2718. Thanks for your immediate attention in this matter!
