The forms below are required for Payroll purposes They can be completed at New Employee or New Faculty Orientation
(depending on your type of appointment), with your department or at the Payroll Department.
Form Deadline About I-9 The Form I-9 is a federally required form used by employers to verify identity and employment eligibility for each new employee. Employees complete Section 1 of the form and provide the appropriate documents (List A or lists B and C) to the University representative to use in completing Section 2. Typically this form is completed at New Employee Orientation, or with your hiring department. The Form I-9 must be completed within 3 days of hire and must be received by the Payroll department to guarantee on-time payment. W-4 & CT-W4 The W-4 and CT-W4 forms provide the Payroll Department with the necessary information to withhold the correct Federal and State Withholding Taxes. The system will automatically default you to the highest withholding rate which will deduct the most from your paycheck.
Non-resident alien (NRA) employees must make an appointment with Karla Desjardins (firstname.lastname@example.org) to complete the necessary tax withholding forms.
Direct Deposit The Payroll Department encourages all employees to enroll in Direct Deposit. Some of the benefits of direct deposit include protection against the loss or theft of paychecks, reliable and timely payments and pay is accessible earlier than the funds from checks. If you currently receive direct deposit from other state employment, a new form is not required. If you are a retiree, you must complete a direct deposit form with the state retirement division.
The paycheck dates below are contingent upon your I-9 and hire paperwork from your department being completed accurately and submitted to the
Payroll Department by the deadlines noted above.
