Electronic Personnel Action Form - EPAF

An EPAF is an Electronic Personnel Action Form in Self Service Banner (SSB), used to enter and submit personnel actions electronically in Banner. Many of the transactions previously submitted to Human Resources via PR40 (Personnel Action) and PR4 (Separation/Transfer Notice) forms can be electronically submitted, routed through an approval chain, and applied to Banner. EPAFs are another step in achieving a paperless personnel action process.

I-9 Advantage

The I-9 Advantage system was adopted by the Department of Human Resources in the spring of 2020., allowing for the I-9 process to be completed online (employees are still required to show valid supporting documentation in person).  Using I-9 Advantage all new hires are sent customized login credentials to complete section 1 of Form I-9 securely online prior to beginning employment with RU.  Once supporting documentation is reviewed, section 2 is completed and verified on I-9 Advantage in one setting making the entire I-9 process more streamlined and environmentally friendly by saving paper.  This system allows authorized users to track where new hires are in the I-9 process to ensure the form is completed in compliance with federal regulations.  I-9 Advantage serves as a single repository for storing, managing, and searching for all Radford University I-9 records.

With such sensitive information, system security is our top priority, therefore only authorized users in HR, the Tax Compliance Office, Financial Aid, the Graduate College, and at RUC have access to this system.  

For system access please contact Marcia Elliott, our Systems Director.  If you experience any issues or have questions regarding the I-9 process or I-9 Advantage,  please contact Ethan Jones, our HR Assistant.
