Your First Day
Orientation & Required Documentation
Welcome to Prince George’s County Government! Your first assignment as a new employee is to attend the New Employee Orientation Program (NEOP). The orientation session is held on the employee’s first day of work from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. New employees will receive an email prior to their scheduled orientation session with details on how to participate in the session.
The New Employee Orientation Program (NEOP) is designed to familiarize new employees with Prince George’s County Government and to provide information and resource materials that will answer questions about County employment and expectations. This program will also provide valuable insight into the responsibilities of public service and an awareness of the County’s goals, objectives, and structure. New employees will become acquainted with the laws and policies governing County employees and the various benefits and services available.

As a requirement of E-Verify, employees are required to submit forms of identification with photos from List A – Documents that Establish Both Identity and Employment Authorization or from List B – Documents that Establish Identity found on page 3 of the Form I-9.
