Payroll and Tax Services needs to be notified of any paid employee (student, staff, faculty, or graduate student) doing any portion of their work for UVM outside the state of Vermont. This allows us to ensure our capabilities and compliance with payroll, unemployment, and withholding tax law. Payroll and Tax also informs Risk Management to ensure we have proper coverage for Worker’s Compensation. It is to the benefit of both the employee and the University to ensure Payroll and Tax are provided with this information before any work commences and when a work location changes.
PeopleSoft Self-Service now has the ability to notify payroll and tax electronically of work being done outside of Vermont. Once logged into PeopleSoft Human Resources, go to the UVM Employee screen and select the Payroll and Tax tile. Once there employees will see a link on the left side of the screen connecting them with the Out-of-State Form. See the User Guide (PDF) for further instructions.
- Please note: The turnaround time for foreign check requests is 10 business days from the date Payroll & Tax Services (Waterman 237) receives a complete packet.
- The Employee vs. Independent Contractor Policy (PDF) has been revised. Refer to the Employee vs. Independent Contractor policy/procedure training slide deck (PDF) for information on the new determination process.
