LOCATION/HOURS

The College of Law is located in Dineen Hall Suite 400.  The office operates according to the University's published hours for administrative offices: Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 5:00pm during the academic year, Monday through Friday, 8:00am to 4:30pm during the summer, and is closed for holidays as published by the University's Office of Human Resources.

STAFF REQUEST TO HIRE

When there is a need to hire a permanent staff member, the hiring manager should complete or update the Position Evaluation Request (PER) and submit to the Assistant Dean for Finance and Administration. The PER template and/or the most recent PER for an existing position may be requested from the Assistant Dean for Finance and Administration.

The completed PER form will be submitted to the central HR Compensation team for their review and grading of the position. HR Compensation will forward the request to the central Office of Budget & Planning for review, and then to the Provost & Syracuse University Director of Budget & Planning for approval. Once approved, the hiring manager will work directly with the central HR Talent Acquisition team to fill the position.

An I-9 form and background check MUST be completed through the central Human Resources office before the employee can begin working.

TEMPORARY EMPLOYEE REQUEST TO HIRE

A temporary employee may be requested for positions that work on an as-needed basis (i.e. casual temporaries such as models and accompanists), or the position is expected to last for a short, pre- established period of time (i.e. interim until a permanent position is filled). Temporary employees are both non-student and non-SU student employees. The first step in hiring a temporary employee reach out to the Assistant Dean for Finance and Administration.

Once the request is approved the request, LAW Budget will work with HR Talent Acquisition and the Department to fill the position.

An I-9 form and background check MUST be completed through the central Human Resources office before the employee can begin working.

STUDENT EMPLOYEE REQUEST TO HIRE

Student employment is reserved for SU students only, and hire requests typically fall into 3 categories:

  1. Faculty Student Assistants (FSA)

  3. Sponsored Student Assistant

NEW EMPLOYEE INFORMATION

SUID

The SUID is a nine-digit number unique to each employee and is imprinted on the physical Syracuse University identification card. SUIDs for new hires are created by central Human Resources on receipt of a completed Personal Identification Form (PIF). Visit the Housing, Meal, and ID Card Service Center located on Main Campus at 111 Waverly Ave, Suite 111, Syracuse, NY 13244. Provide your SUID or Social Security Number AND a picture identification such as a valid driver’s license or passport. You may be asked to provide a copy of your signed offer letter as well. Your picture will be taken, and your identification card provided to you.

I-9 FORM

The Immigration Reform and Control Act requires all U.S. employers to verify the identity and employment eligibility of all new employees, citizens, and non-citizens alike. All employees must complete an I-9 on their first day, or prior to their first day scheduled to work. The I-9 form is completed at the central Human Resources offices located at either 210 Steele Hall (on campus) or the 621 Skytop office building (south campus). A list of necessary documents needed to complete the I-9 can be found at http://humanresources.syr.edu/.

New student hires will receive an email with a unique link from LawLogix/Guardian to complete the Form I-9 remotely.

NetID

The NetID is an alphanumeric string composed of elements from the employee or student’s full name.

NetIDs are created once the SUID is assigned. New employees will be sent confirmation of SUID and instructions for activating NetID. Each employee or sponsored affiliate is responsible for activation of their NetID on the ITS Self-Service web site. Once the NetID is activated, resources such as email, MySlice access, and network home storage are provisioned.

Each user has an associated University email address of the form <NetID>@syr.edu. Email for faculty and staff addressed to the official email address is delivered to a University provided Microsoft Exchange mailbox. Email addressed to students is delivered to a Microsoft Office 365 SUmail mailbox.

As per University policy, NetID passwords must be changed annually and may not be shared.  For more information on university policies governing computer accounts, please refer to the SU Policies web site.
