March 9, 2021
Dear Principal Investigators and Research Administrators:
It’s that time once again to plan your research and creative activities for spring break 2021. This is a reminder so you can plan ahead.
New hires, including hiring new student employees
If you plan to hire new employees in your sponsored project, please remember to complete the new hire sign in process prior to allowing them to work on your project.
Federal regulations require all employers to verify that individuals are authorized to work in the United States. The Form I-9 (Employment Eligibility Verification) must be completed for every new employee (including citizens and noncitizen nationals of the United States) before the first day of work. Furthermore, failure to comply with these requirements may result in civil penalties incurred by The University Corporation and CSU Northridge.
Additional Pay – Spring Break 2021 (DUE: March 21, 2021)
Additional pay system for spring break 2021 is open. All spring break 2021 pre-authorization requests must be submitted by March 21, 2021. After this date, you will not be able to enter any requests for spring break 2021.
Below are the guidelines for submitting additional pay on any sponsored project for spring break 2021:
- Only AY faculty may apply for spring break additional pay. If you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact the Office of Faculty Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- AY faculty can submit up to 6 days (125% time), however, can only claim up to 5 days (100%) in federal and federal pass-through projects.
I have attached the TUC additional pay top 10 tips and training guide. Below are the links to the training videos for both pre-authorization and request of payment:
