The Academic Personnel Office (APO) and Campus Shared Services (CSS) Human Resources collaborated to clarify the guidelines regarding Bridging and Grace Periods. With the goal of minimizing the impact of onboarding for our student hires, these guidelines have been reviewed and input gathered from a number of campus units including Central HR, Office of General Counsel (OGC), Graduate Division, Contracts and Grants Accounting (CGA), RAs, Budget Office, Controller’s Office, and various department units. Here are updated, fully vetted guidelines, a list of FAQs, and a quick summary of what is and is not changing.
What is NOT changing:
Student employees will continue receive pay on their next available MO pay cycle.
In order to keep in compliance with I-9 legal requirements, a new hire should NOT begin working until they successfully complete onboarding.
What IS changing:
No more recalculations are required to ensure students are eligible for fee remissions.
Employees will be paid via a retroactive pay process for all time worked prior to onboarding in the next available MO cycle payment.
The hire date on the I-9 will not drive the appointment start date in HCM.
If you need further assistance, you can contact your CSS HR/APS Service Delivery contact or your CSS HR Generalist.
