Payroll vs. Accounts Payable
It is extremely important that any payment for work done by a student or employee of the university be processed through Payroll rather than through Accounts Payable. All payments to students or employees must be paid via PNF through the Payroll department. Payments to individuals are processed via check request in the Accounts Payable office.
Failure to properly report these individuals as employees and remitting the appropriate portion of employer's tax puts the university and the individual at risk of incurring severe financial penalties from the IRS. If you are unsure as to the proper handling of payments to be made to an individual please contact the Human Resources department.
