New Employee Orientation
All new employees are required to complete the following steps of New Employee Orientation before the conclusion of their second week of on-site training. Employees who do not complete the New Employee Orientation within 90 days of hire are out of compliance and may place the agency at risk; therefore non-compliant employees will be removed from the work schedule until they have completed the training requirements. Please read and follow instructions carefully.
