Terms of Employment

Appointments to the Hunter College Non-Tax Levy Payroll are subject to departmental needs and the financial ability of the College. Non-Tax Levy Payroll employees have the status of employee-at-will. Therefore, no one has a contractual right, either expressed or implied, to remain in Hunter College's employment. Hunter College may terminate an employee's employment, or an employee may terminate his/her employment, without cause and with or without notice, at any time and for any reason. No supervisor or other representative of the College has the authority to enter into any employment agreement that would be contrary to the employment-at-will policy. See below for benefits informtion.


Appointment Package

The following completed forms and documents are to be forwarded to the Human Resources Department for review:

Full-time students who are United States citizens or Permanent Residents are exempt from Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes. A receipt from the Bursar's Office confirming their full-time status has to be submitted with their appointment package in order to receive the exemption.

Students employed under a F-1 or J-1 Visa are generally exempt from Social Security and Medicare payroll taxes. Such students also may be exempt from Federal, State and/or City income taxes if the student's resident country has a tax treaty with the United States.

Upon verification of all forms and documentation by Human Resources, Payroll Department will establish the employee's appointment. No employee is allowed to work prior to his or her appointment, so contact the Payroll Department after five (5) days to see if work can commence.

Departments may modify the appointment (i.e. change in hourly rate or number of hours per week) at its discretion and must submit a Revised Appointment Letter. Compensation is based on appropriate attendance information (hourly rate X hours worked, annual rate per pay period, etc.). The employment period begins as stated on the Appointment Letter.

Direct Deposit     

Direct deposit offers you a safer, faster and easier way to receive your pay. Your paycheck is electronically deposited into your account. There is no need to wait for a check to clear, and your salary is therefore available to you in advance of a check mailed to your bank by the College or picked up from Check Distribution on payday.

Reappointment Procedures    

Departments must reappoint staff each fiscal year in order to maintain accurate information on the status of each employee. Reappointment Letters must be submitted prior to the beginning of each fiscal year.

The completed reappointment forms are to be submitted to the Payroll department for review.
