What paperwork is required?
All students must receive an Appointment Notice from their OWU employer before starting a job. New employees also must fill out state and federal tax withholding forms and complete the I-9. For the I-9, you’ll need to show original documents verifying identity and employment eligibility, e.g., an original driver’s license, student ID, passport, etc. Documents that prove eligibility to work in the U.S. include an original Social Security card, certified birth certificate, or state issued picture ID. A United States passport will work for both proof of identity and eligibility to work. For a complete list of acceptable documents visit: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-9.pdf. Students unable to provide these documents cannot work.
You can complete the I-9 Form in the Student Employment / Human Resources Department in University Hall, Room 003. Direct Deposit will be required unless you are applying your earnings toward your student account (you will need to fill out a separate form to apply your pay to your student account). To complete the Direct Deposit information, you must provide a copy of a blank check or a form from your bank indicating your account and routing numbers.
