Once a student secures employment, the following forms must be completed:
- Student Employment Contract
- U. S. Department of Justice Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9)
- Federal, state and local tax forms
- Other tax forms (International Students only)
The completion of these forms is essential to the operation of Student Employment, and failure to complete them may result in the forfeiture of compensation. Additionally, the department may require employees to complete departmental contracts, which include more detailed descriptions of student responsibilities.
The Student Employment Contract must be completed annually, each time a student changes jobs, as well as any time a student works for Wittenberg during break period.
The I-9 requires two forms of original identification (e.g., passport, drivers license, social security card, birth certificate).
A list of acceptable identification forms is available. This form is required only once during the four years. Furthermore, the student must compete a W-4 tax form and any other tax documents that might be necessary.
These forms are available from and will be kept on file by the Student Employment Office. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all of the necessary paperwork has been completed and received by the Student Employment Office.
Students may not work until all paperwork is completed.
