Policy 117 – Orientation

Date Issued: 03/93
Date Revised: 03/14

All new employees are required to attend an employee orientation.  As a general practice, all new employees are scheduled to attend orientation on their first day of employment. Only with approval can an employee begin employment on a non-orientation day. Those beginning on a non-orientation day are required to attend employee orientation as soon as possible after being hired but within 30 days of employment (or transfer, if applicable).

Newly hired employees will be given a general introduction to UAB/UAB Medicine, an explanation of services and programs available to them as employees, a review of UAB/UAB Medicine policies and procedures, an overview of benefit options, and an opportunity to enroll (if applicable).

Employees working in direct patient care areas and other specialized areas
are required to attend an additional orientation specific to their duties.
