To insure your monthly paperwork is processed, PAFs must be received in Human Resources by the 10th of every month. If it needs signatures from the Budget Office or Contracts and Grants, be sure it is sent to them prior to coming to Human Resources.
To insure your biweekly paperwork is processed, PAFs must be received in Human Resources on the last day of the pay period (most often a Friday). If it needs a signature from the Budget Office or Contracts and Grants, be sure it is sent to them prior to coming to Human Resources.
Faculty and Part-Time Faculty
2015 – 2016 Academic Year
August 19, 2015 – May 13, 2016 Actual Academic Year Dates
Personnel Action Forms (PAF) dates:
August 17, 2015 – May 19, 2016
The following deadlines have been set in order to ensure that all new faculty and new or continuing Adjunct appointments are completed in time for the Fall semester. All dates are the latest date the forms should be received by the specified office. The only exceptions should be those cases which are late or emergency hires.
Due to the large volume of salary increases that need to be input - any assistance you can provide in getting these forms to our office early would be appreciated and help insure that all employee raises as well as other employee actions are entered in time for employee pay. This is especially true if there are other salary adjustments such as faculty promotion increases. We would like to enter all increases for an employee at one time - so please complete those forms now to facilitate that.
Please be aware that until the fully completed paperwork is received by Human Resources, the employee will not appear in SOAR, and if new, will not have a USM email address.
