If you are a hiring manager outside of UW Medicine, your Human Resources employment representative will send a New Hire Confirmation/OPUS Approval email to you when the temporary hourly appointment is reviewed and approved. You will also receive an email copy of the Temporary Employment Notice sent to the employee.

It is important that you enter a new employee into the payroll system as soon as possible as it triggers the Benefits Office to send the new employee information on their benefits eligibility. Not having the employee entered into payroll in the pay cycle in which they were hired causes a delay in alerting the employee to time-sensitive information about their benefits eligibility.
Some temporary positions are benefits-eligible. Learn more.
