January 20, 2023

Good afternoon, everyone: 

Quick reminders before spring 2023 starts…

New hires, including hiring new student employees

If you plan to 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, which includes ensuring that an individual has social security card and number. 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.
Please visit the PI FAQ page regarding personnel and payroll if you have any questions. Please contact tuchr@csun.edu,  or your Post-award liaison if you have specific questions not addressed in the FAQ page.
