What Does it Mean to be a "New Hire"?
You are a “new hire” if you have never worked for Winona State University before. If you have worked for Chartwell’s Dining Services on campus, you have not worked for WSU. Chartwell’s is a separate employer.
Work Study and Student HelpOnce a supervisor has decided to offer you a work study or student help position, she or he will submit an electronic Authorization Form to student payroll. This form “authorizes” you to work for a particular department for a specific timeframe. However, if you have never worked for WSU before, you must complete hiring documents before you may begin working:
- Federal I-9 Form (Employment Eligibility Verification) and
- W-4 Tax Withholding Form (Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate)
