Units often encounter difficulty in submitting employee expense reimbursements when the employee has had a change in their work status e.g. terminations etc. Currently the only way to avoid these problems is to submit employee expense reimbursements as quickly as possible. Please inform employees in your areas that to avoid potential reimbursement delays they should always submit their expenses in a timely manner. If units know that a change in work life is occurring for an employee (e.g. termination, transfer, etc.) they should be aware that these "work-life changes" can create difficulties in the reimbursement process and should be submitted as quickly as possible.

In CLA, we encounter this issue frequently with grad employees. Please encourage your staff and students to submit these expenses as soon as possible to avoid delay in reimbursement.

CLA Payroll Updated Website Information

Recently updated form: New hires for CLA - Required documentation

 This form has been recently updated to include what is needed for a "Without Salary Appointment" (WOS) for an external reviewer for Grad School Oral/Dissertation Committees. It also includes a link to the process on the CLA Grad Programs website.

I-9 Update - International Employees

When sending your international employees to complete their I9's, it is strongly suggested that you make an appointment with central payroll or risk being turned away. Please call 625-2016 to make an appointment. Central payroll also prefers that these I9's are completed at the job center in Donhowe on the East Bank campus, rather than at payroll in WBOB.
