This service is only available at UNH and KSC.

If the information provided on the adjunct faculty 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.

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.

You will also have the option of uploading a signed offer letter/contract to this form. If you do not attach a signed offer letter/contract, HR will create one for you. KSC will be required to attach signed contracts at the time of ticket submission.
