The Employee On-Boarding template is a  workflow that's used by new employees to provide information required for on-boarding. It automatically generates U.S. Government W-4 and I-9 forms. First, the employee completes the needed information, views the generated PDF documents and confirms. The workflow is then routed to HR for review and completion.
