Orientation provides new employees with an introduction to District Government, a discussion of DC personnel policies, and information about employee benefits. The DC Department of Human Resources offers New Employee Orientation twice a month, coinciding with the start of a new pay period.

To help make the Entry of Duty (EOD) process a smooth transaction upon your arrival, DCHR encourages new employees to complete all onboarding paperwork, electronically, prior to the start of New Employee Orientation. New employees will also need to present applicable I-9 documents to their respective agencies on the first day of employment to complete the EOD process.
For more information on completing these forms or for New Employee Orientation dates, times and/or locations, please call DCHR's HR Answers line at (202) 442-9700 and ask to speak with your HR Specialist.
