Because of heavy demands within the ME HR Payroll office, we suggest submitting hiring requests well in advance of the desired employment start date. Hiring requests are to be submitted for any type of appointment, paid or non-paid.
New employee appointments will start on the first available Monday, provided the appointee completes all required payroll documents in a timely fashion.
There are extended processing times for the following types of employees:
- Individuals entering the U.S. on a J-1 visa require 90 additional days (due to ISSS and U.S. State Department processing times)
- Individuals entering the U.S. on an H-1 visa require 245 additional days (due to ISSS and U.S. State Department processing times)
Our electronic hiring forms are programmed to default to the earliest available start date. It is important to understand that we CANNOT backdate any employment start dates. Advanced/future start dates are acceptable. Backdated requests will not be processed.
In order to volunteer, the position must be unpaid and classified as a volunteer position. Typical volunteer opportunities include school fund raisers or volunteering for a public service.
A position that would normally be paid is not considered a volunteer opportunity.
