Administrators of Student Employees
It is a liability to the Eastman School of Music for any student to work before an electronic I-9 has been completed and processed. The student cannot be paid until an electronic I-9 form has been submitted. In addition, should a student become injured while working without an I-9, insurance coverage is not in effect. Prior to allowing a student to begin work, it must be verified that a student has completed the I-9.
The entire hiring process, including verification of I-9s, is managed online via FAJobLink. Employers should log on to FAJobLink via their HRMS account. Instructions for verifying an I-9 as well as for reporting a hire are included in the Employer User Manual located in the FAJobLink Resource Library.
