New Hires

The Processing & Records department of Human Resources is responsible for obtaining all required documentation from employees hired at the University and entering the data into the payroll system.  Newly hired employees must start on a Monday (except if it is a holiday, then it would be Tuesday) and attend New Employee Orientation.  Processing of new hires includes but is not limited to completion of the I-9 form, W-4 Form, Direct Deposit enrollment, personal data sheet, and loyalty oath.  New employees coming to orientation must bring with them a blank check for the direct deposit and acceptable identification for the I-9 form.

Florida Atlantic University Direct Deposit Policy

Florida Atlantic University, under section 1010.11, Florida Statutes, requires all employees to receive their salary and other payments via direct deposit.  Direct deposit forms are available in the Payroll Office and in the Payroll Section of the Controller’s Office website: (


Faculty employees must sign in as described in the New Hires section.  A Notice of Appointment will be prepared by the hiring department and sent for required approvals.  It must be received in the Processing & Records, Department of Human Resources, no later than Thursday noon, prior to the Monday hire date.  Any changes to the contract information, other than salary, position, and/or tenure information, can be processed on a Personnel Action Form (PAF). Changes involving salary, position, and/or tenure require a new Notice of Appointment.

Administrative, Managerial & Professional (AMP), Support Personnel (SP), Adjunct and Temporary

AMP, SP, Adjunct, and Temporary employees must sign in upon hire as described in the New Hires section.  A Personnel Action Form (PAF) must be prepared by the hiring department and sent for required approvals.  It must be received in the Processing & Records department of Human Resources no later than Thursday noon, prior to the Monday hire date.  Any changes to the employee's record will require a new PAF Form. In addition to the PAF, the hiring department must prepare a Letter of Offer that must be signed by the employee and must accompany the PAF when it is sent to Processing & Records.

Additional Compensation

Additional Compensation should only be processed for employees in a Faculty, Administrative, Managerial & Professional (AMP), or Support Personnel (SP) position.   When there are additional assignments to an SP, AMP or Faculty employee's primary assignment, then an Additional Compensation Form must be completed by the department that is hiring the individual along with a PAF.  Both documents must be forwarded to the necessary parties for required signature approvals and sent to Processing & Records or submitted electronically, if applicable.  Support Personnel (SP) employees are designated as non-exempt by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). SP employees whose actual hours of work in the established work week exceeds 40 hours will earn either overtime pay or overtime compensatory leave. The maximum amount of overtime compensatory leave that may be accrued is 120 hours. All overtime earned in excess of that amount must be overtime pay, until the overtime compensatory leave balance is reduced .  Hiring departments are held responsible for calculating the overtime.  Overtime shall be calculated at the rate of one and one half times the total hours worked beyond 40 hours.  EPAF users, please remember that the additional compensation form must be approved and sent to Processing and Records prior to you submitting the EPAF assignment.

Separation of Employees

When an employee leaves the University there are several things that need to be taken care of.  For example, we need to make sure that the employees’ pay is stopped, access to computing systems is stopped, property is returned to the university, and the employee has all the information they need regarding their separation.  To assist departments in this process we have developed step by step separation of employment instructions.  You can find the step by step instructions and all of the documents you will need at:  Separations.
