Jack Heidler, Director

To save time and give departments more control, new University Support Personnel System (USPS) employees now should be signed up for payroll using the same procedures currently in place for OPS, A&P, and faculty: in the department! Payroll sign-up forms to be completed on the employee’s first day of employment include:

  • W-4 card (available from Processing and Records)
  • I-9 employment eligibility form (available from Printing and Graphics)
  • Four-part form — loyalty oath, invention and copyright agreement, controlled substance questionnaire, and retirement plan form (available from Printing and Graphics)
  • FRS M10 personal history record (available from Printing and Graphics)

See the list below for help completing these forms. Completed payroll forms should be forwarded immediately to the Central Employment recruiter responsible for the position.

This procedure will benefit you and your new USPS employees in the following ways:

  • Timely first paychecks: Personnel payroll data no longer will be delayed until the new employee attends orientation. As a result, new appointments will be entered into the payroll system promptly, ensuring the employee receives his or her first paycheck in a timely manner.
  • Fewer emergencies: Requests for emergency checks and supplemental certification activity will be reduced.
  • Shorter orientation: The time new employees spend in orientation will be shortened by approximately 30 minutes.

New USPS employees still are required to attend orientation and should be scheduled for the first available session. University Personnel Services designed the USPS new employee orientation program to help explain UF’s policies and procedures — a key component in helping employees understand their rights and responsibilities and provide an overview of the many available benefits.

We are hopeful that you and your staff will view this expanded procedure as a positive benefit to your departments and director of Central services satellite office.staff. Should you have questions concerning this process, please call Greg Marwede, assistant Employment, at 392-4621, send e-mail to greg-marwede@ufl.edu, or contact your personnel services satellite office.
