Determining Start Date for UC Davis Health Staff

It is important to plan ahead when hiring employees so you can provide the successful candidate an appropriate start date. 

Implementation of the UCPath personnel/payroll system brings increased efficiencies and functionality, and reduces flexibility to change start dates. 

The candidate’s acceptance of an offer initiates the pre-hire and onboarding processes the Health Service Channel will undertake before the staff employee can start work. The time needed for these pre-hire and onboarding processes differs for some staff positions.
