Both companies sign an intent to sell before the contract is executed, after which due diligence begins.
When we complete all necessary regulatory reviews the contract is executed and the transaction is final.
After the Compensation team completes mapping positions at the acquired company with similar positions at UnitedHealth Group, they issue compensation letters to employees. They usually send these letters one month prior to the Human Capital integration date.
This is the date that the acquired companies’ employees join the payroll and benefits of and become part of UnitedHealth Group.
Employees will continue to use the same log-in credentials and business applications to do their work until further notice. However, they must log into the UnitedHealth Group Intranet, the Hub, so they can perform Human Capital transactions like completing the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 and reporting and approving work time and paid time off.
All employees must complete an Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 to continue employment with UnitedHealth Group, even though they have already completed one with their current employer.
Benefits enrollment typically begins the day after the Human Capital integration date and continues for 30 days.
