Hiring Process

Step 1: Employment Confirmation Form

Upon accepted job offer, the supervisor, faculty member, or faculty assistant must download the updated School of Law Employment Confirmation Form (PDF: 273 KB), complete Part I of the form, and submit it to the student worker to complete the remaining section. The Employment Confirmation Form is a fillable PDF.

  • Note, international students must apply for a Social Security Number if they do not have one.  Students must follow the Social Security Number instructions provided by the Office of Global Services.  The Social Security Administration has limited in-office hours and there have been delays in securing an appointment.  You can still move on to Step 2 even if you have not secured an SSA appointment yet or received your SSN card in the mail.

Step 2: Approved Wasserman Form

All students must also register their on-campus employment with the New York University Wasserman Center for Career Development once every academic year by submitting an appointment form via Albert.  Please visit Wasserman Center On-Campus Employment for instructions. For students who have never worked on-campus before, the process also involves completing a USCIS Form I-9 with Wasserman in-person and completing tax forms and direct deposit online via PeopleSync.  Once completed, Wasserman will approve the Appointment Form in Albert.  For any questions, you may contact Wasserman directly at or 212-998-4758.

Step 3: Submit Forms to Law HR

Students must download and email the approved Wasserman Appointment Form and completed Employment Confirmation Form to NYU Law Human Resources at before or on the appointment start date.  Law Human Resources will provide information related to the digital Wage Rate Form, timesheet completion and the bi-weekly pay schedule, and if applicable, will remind you to let us know once you've received your SSN receipt and card in the mail.  Students must record their hours worked promptly.

Note: Once you have completed the above hiring process, if you have not already and would like to update your preferred name in PeopleSync, please do so using the following tip sheet. If you do not, your legal name in PeopleSync may override your preferred name in Albert and may inadvertently be used for course rosters, emails, and other materials pulled from Albert.
