Additional Required Training
All STEPS temporary employes are required to complete at least one additional training. Staff taking assignments in UK HealthCare areas have additional mandatory requirements highlighted below.
Please note: You will complete the following required training sessions through the myUK Employee Self-Service online system, which requires a UK link blue user name and password. In many cases, it may take up to 4-5 business days after you begin your first STEPS job before this log in information is available to you. Once you have your link blue login information, check out this quick step-by-step guide to completing mandatory training through the myUK system.
Preventing Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Training (Required for All - Campus and UK HealthCare)
The University of Kentucky policy prohibits sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination. All HR Temporary Employment employees are expected to understand and follow policies and procedures related to both. Once your link blue login information is available, log in to myUK to complete this training.
HIPAA and Corporate Compliance (UK HealthCare Areas)
The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996, along with state law, mandates the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI). All HR Temporary Employment employees working in UK HealthCare areas (including hospitals, clinics and clinical areas of the College of Medicine, for example) are required to complete training in HIPAA responsibilities and requirements.
Any HR Temporary Employment employee who transfers from a campus position must complete HIPAA training prior to beginning work in a UK HealthCare area. Once your link blue login information is available, log in to myUK to complete this training.
Corporate Compliance training is mandatory for employees working in UK HealthCare areas (such as hospitals and clinics).
