Regular employees and student employees of the Research Foundation (RF) have paperwork to complete when hired. Prior to employment a background check may be required when a position is accepted. When employment begins, the RF must verify eligibility for employment in the United States, using an I-9 form. Employees must prove eligibility by presenting acceptable documentation such as a drivers license and social security card. On-campus employees may complete the I-9 at the Sponsored Programs Operations (SPO) Human Resources (HR) office in Buckham B206. Off-campus employees will be able to fill out the form and have it verified by the off- campus office of the sponsored program where they are working. Once hired to work on a sponsored program of the Research Foundation, the Principal Investigator (PI) or staff will be completing an Employee Assignment Form. Additionally, the employee will need to complete federal and state tax forms, an Employment Application, and a form that provides the HR office with emergency contact information.
If employed in a regular, non-student assignment for .5 FTE (half time) or more, the employee may be benefits eligible and will accrue leave. The RF salaried payroll and hourly payroll are scheduled on a biweekly basis on Fridays. Regardless of employment status employees are responsible to submit an attendance report on a biweekly or monthly basis.
As an RF employee it is your responsibility to adhere to the policies of the RF as well as the policies and procedures of the sponsored program in which you are working. The SPO Human Resources staff is ready to assist with all employment related needs.
