Hiring Process

To be completed by all student employees each academic year:

Step 1:

The supervisor and student worker must complete the School of Law Employment Confirmation Form (PDF: 459 KB) and attached New York State Notice and Acknowledgement of Wage Rate form.

  • Note, international students must apply for a social security number, if they do not have one, before starting Step 2. Students must follow the Social Security Number instructions provided by the Office of Global Services. Questions can be directed to the Office of Global Services at 212-998-4720.  When students visit the Social Security Administration Center, they will receive a receipt/document confirming they have applied for the SSN card.  Upon receiving this receipt, the student can proceed to Step 2.  The student does not have to wait until the actual SSN card arrives via USPS mail.

Step 2:

All students must register with the New York University Wasserman Center for Career Development every academic year and obtain an On-Campus Student Employment Application approved by the Wasserman Center.  The On-Campus Student Employment Application is submitted online via Albert.  Additional steps are briefly outlined below and full in-depth instructions should be reviewed for any changes on the Wasserman Center On-Campus Employment website.  Pursuant to federal regulations, Step 1 and Step 2 must be completed on or before the date of hire.

  • First-time student hires must:

    Complete online onboarding tasks in PeopleSync.  The PeopleSync link will be available via NYUHome Work tab 24-48 hours after the On-Campus Student Employment Application form is submitted online via Albert.  In PeopleSync, complete online forms I-9, Payment Elections (direct deposit), and Withholding Elections (W-4).  Note, international students only need to complete the I-9 and direct deposit forms; a separate NYU Glacier account will be prepared for them to complete their tax documents.  After completing the PeopleSync online forms, students must visit the Wasserman Center to present required documents that prove identity and eligibility to work in the United States (review required documents).  The Wasserman Center is located at 133 East 13th Street, 2nd Floor, (212) 998-4730.  Wasserman will provide you with the approved On-Campus Student Application form. 

  • Students being rehired must:

    Submit the Reappointment Form A via Albert by following the instructions listed on the Wasserman Center On-Campus Employment website.  After submission, note, if you are a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, Wasserman will electronically approve the form within 1-3 business days.  If you are an international student, you may have to visit the Wasserman Center again to present your I-20 or DS-2019.  You can discuss with Wasserman at 212-998-4730.  Please print out the approved On-Campus Student Application via Albert.

Step 3:

Students must hand deliver the On-Campus Student Application Form, Employment Confirmation Form and New York State Notice and Acknowledgement of Wage Rate form, and Social Security Administration Receipt (if applicable) to NYU Law Human Resources, 110 West 3rd Street, Suite 244, before or on the appointment start date.  Law Human Resources will provide information related to timesheet completion and the payment process.
