Payroll Authorization

Staff Hire Process

Payroll Authorization

After the candidate has accepted the offer and consent to the background check has been confirmed with HR and follow the following processes by Division for submitting a Payroll Authorization.

Payroll Authorizations by Division

Payroll Authorizations (PAs) are used to establish a new employee, make changes to the information of an existing employee, or end employment of an existing employee.

Payroll authorizations are created in the finance center or authorized PASF Department Administrators at the request of the department/program.

Refer to the Preferred Professional Names Policy, when obtaining name of record for Employee Hires.

Professional Names Policy

Effective May 13, 2014

Preferred Professional Names for Faculty/Staff - First and/or Last Name

Non-student employees may self-identify preferred professional first, middle or last name, in addition to their legal name as presented on their Social Security Card. Employees may add or change a preferred professional name by accessing Employee Self-Service and updating the preferred first, middle or last names on the Personal Information form.  Employees who wish to change their legal name with the College may do so by visiting the Payroll office with their new Social Security Card, Marriage Certificate, Divorce Decree or State Driver's License.

Preferred Professional Name Data Standards

Although employees are generally free to determine the preferred professional names they wish to be known by, inappropriate use of a preferred professional name may be cause for denying the request.  Dartmouth College reserves the right to remove a preferred professional name if it is used inappropriately.  Preferred professional names must adhere to database character standards used by College systems.
