As a new employee, you will be asked to complete several forms. We strongly encourage you to complete these documents before your first day of work, since completing the first section of the Immigration Reform and Control Act, I-9 Form, for example, is mandatory before you can begin working. If you fail to complete the I-9 Form before the third day of employment, you may not continue to work until you do so. The Immigration Reform and Control Act requires that we visually inspect the originals of all documents you present as evidence of your eligibility to work in the United States. Photocopies cannot be accepted. If you have questions regarding the required identification for the I-9 form, please call Human Resources at (96)2-6510. Forms are available in the Department of Human Resources in Room 217 of Aquinas Hall on the St. Paul Campus. The paperwork includes:
- Affirmative Action Information Form
- New Hire Information Form
- Form I-9
- Form W-4
- Privileged Access & Confidentiality Agreement
- Written Notice of Rights and Remedies
- Financial Conflict of Interest Disclosure Statement
- Direct Deposit Authorization Form (optional)
Benefits packets are available in the Department of Human Resources in Aquinas Hall, Room 217. In order to receive your benefits packet, you will need to complete your new hire paperwork listed above.
The benefit packet includes all benefit forms. Employees who work a minimum of 25 hours per week, or a .625 FTE (full time equivalency) are eligible for benefits. Benefits are effective the first of the month following your first month of employment. If your employment date occurs on the first of the month (e.g., July 1, August 1), your benefits become effective that same day. You have 30 days from your employment date to submit your benefit forms to the Department of Human Resources.
UST Net ID accounts are created once the new hire paperwork is completed or after the hiring manager fills out the New Employee form. To claim your account you will use the claim code provided to you by your hiring manager, select this link http://www.stthomas.edu/new and follow the instructions.
The Information Resources and Technologies website hosts several online tutorials to help you learn how to use many commonly used technologies on campus, including Banner, Outlook and the UST phone system.
