Checklist for New Hourly Employees

Student Employees must complete all of these forms before they begin working. Some you will find on-line and some are a PDF that will need to be submitted in person.

  1. Complete the top part of the School of Law appointment form (PDF), print it, have Department Head or Professor complete the bottom half and sign it. This form must be re-submitted each semester, prior to starting employment.

If you are a new UT employee or have not worked for UT in the last year, then you will need to:

  1. Complete the I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification Form (PDF). You must bring the forms of identity along with the I-9. This form and required documents must be completed and turned in within two days of starting employment or Payroll will hold your paycheck.
