Adjunct Staff Hire

This process is used to hire all adjunct staff at KSC and UNH regardless of hours or duration of appointment. 

  • If you do not have an identified candidate and would like to recruit for an adjunct staff position you may utilize PeopleAdmin to create a job posting.  Resources can be found here:
  • This service is not available for PSU at this time.  PSU Supervisors/Hiring Managers: Please visit the PSU Human Resources SharePoint Site for more information on PSU Adjunct Hourly Hiring

  • Please note: This does not include status faculty/staff taking on additional adjunct positions. Please follow the Additional Pay or Supplemental Pay process for these hires.

USNH policy requires that any new employee (including student hourly employees) cannot start work before they are fully onboarded; they must complete all new employee paperwork (including I-9 forms), and then be properly onboarded into payroll, HR, IT, and Finance systems before beginning any job at USNH so their time worked can be tracked and reported in accordance with the law. They must be timely paid for all hours worked, starting from their first day of work. In addition, employees who hire new staff must ensure that their paperwork is expeditiously routed to the appropriate department for processing.

*Please note:
  • Hiring someone for short-term work, i.e. for a weekend or a single event, is generally processed as a one time payment, honorarium, additional pay. They might also be paid as an independent contractor. These all depend on the person's existing relationship with the university, as well as the duration and nature of the work. HR can help you determine the right path forward - contact Recruiting and Onboarding

Please gather the information detailed below and select the Submit a Request button to complete the hiring form.

If the information provided on the part-time adjunct staff hiring form is correct, new hires take about 10-15 business days (the extra time for processing new hires is dependent upon how quickly the new employee completes their hiring paperwork and the timing of the background check results). A new hire cannot start a position until the background check is completed.  

(Please note: Form I-9 will be sent to all new hires and re-hires without valid I-9s on file to complete electronically. Completion of the I-9 page 1 is required by day one of employment and the document verification process for page 2 is required by the 3rd day of employment. The documentation verification process for page 2 of the I-9 is to be completed in person with your Campus HR Office.)

UNH: Be prepared to attach approval documentation: Unit Head/Dean approval for all UNH non-grant funded positions. Positions with split funding should have all associated approvals. (UNH Sponsored Programs (SPA)/ Research Administration (STAR) approval is not required if grant funded.)
