Automatic Extensions of HP Compliance Due Dates due to Technical Issues with the new EverFi Module (May 14, 2018)

May 14, 2018

As we communicated in late March, the university has been experiencing some technical difficulties with the new online harassment prevention courses. ITS and HCIS have made some changes which greatly improved the ability of UI employees to log into the module from the external vendor (EverFi). While many people are able to access the new courses and complete all the modules and the attestation successfully, there are still some employees reporting technical difficulties in having their EverFi module completions recorded properly within the university’s learning management system (ICON).

ITS is in contact with EverFi and they are working to resolve the issues that have been reported. We do not have an estimated date yet for resolution of these sporadic issues.

For this reason, we have decided to grant another round of due date extensions to individuals with a due date on or before May 31, 2018.

Automatic Extensions of Due Dates for Selected Employees:

If due on or before May 31, 2018: Employees who had a due date on or before May 31, 2018 for this compliance will receive an automatic extension of their due date until June 15, 2018. These employees may attend an instructor-led program or attempt to complete the online course.

The university continues to offer instructor-led courses through UI Learning & Development and UI Health Care Human Resources. More information on the instructor-led courses is available from EOD’s website and from UI Health Care, Faculty & Staff New Hire Orientation’s website. To enroll in an instructor-led course, visit Employee Self Service, Personal Tab, Sexual Harassment Prevention Edu, Instructor Led Classes.

I will inform the HR Community members once the technical issues with the online courses from EverFi have been resolved.

Please email diversity@uiowa.edu with any additional questions/concerns and thank you for your patience as we work to resolve the sporadic issues with the new online courses.
