University of Nevada Cooperative Extension 4-H Youth Development Entering Volunteers (Contingent Workers) into Workday


Volunteers are now referred to as Contingent Workers. There are three types of Contingent Workers as a Volunteer in Workday. Those three are:

  1. Limited (3 days or less volunteering)-These would be what we would consider Resource Volunteer Leaders. It would include workshop instructors, fair judges, etc.
  2. Extended (3 days or more volunteering)-This is the majority of the 4-H Volunteer Leaders, 4-H Camp Chaperones, etc.
  3. Library access and NET ID only-Nevada 4-H should not have any contingent workers in this category.

Each Department or Program (4-H Youth Development, Master Gardner’s, etc.) must enter Contingent Workers into Workday. This can be done by either Admin Asst. in the office or by 4-H personnel. If you do not have access to enter volunteer leaders into Workday, you can request that access through a Workday ticket . If you are unable to get permission through the Workday ticket, please contact the State 4-H Office. In the Workday ticket, be sure to include the employees name and employee number and the basis for the request. Also, you need to make sure to cc your supervisor so everyone is on the same page.

There are three steps to this process:

  1. The county personnel (either administrative assistant or 4-H personnel) will enter the Contingent Worker’s initial basic information into Workday. The contingent worker will need to be there when entering this data because it will require a social security number and birthdate.
  2. The Contingent Worker gets approval by the 4-H personnel’s manager.
  3. Contingent Worker completes the on-boarding process through Workday via email notification. On this step, you will need to stay on top of them to make sure they complete everything.

When entering information into Workday, you will only paper form that is needed is the Terms of Agreement, which can be printed out via Workday.

Onboarding for Volunteer Leader

Once the manager approves, the Contingent Worker will receive an email with instructions on how to get to Workday, how to log on and how to make a profile. Be sure to tell them to look at their spam email folder. The email is typically sent within 1 day.

Once they log into Workday, new Contingent Workers will receive a notification that will automatically be in their Workday inbox (top right of screen). They can update their demographic information.

The next message that will pop up in their Workday Inbox will be a prompt to change their emergency contacts and to review and acknowledge the Nevada System of Higher Education required policies and terms. When they click “I Agree” and “Submit,” the process is DONE!
