Processing student employee contracts

All contracts will be created in the Human Resource Management System (HRMS) and processed by HR.

Hiring Managers are responsible for:

  • Creating and submitting contracts in HRMS.
  • Ensuring the information entered on the contracts are accurate (rate of pay, FOAP).
  • Communicating with students to be hired to ensure they create a profile in HRMS and upload their banking information and Work Study Approval Form.

Contracts submitted in HRMS will not be processed by HR without the Work Study Approval Form. Students must go into HRMS and upload the Approval Form themselves.

Processing Work Study and Non Work Study Student Employees on HRMS
When processing student hires on HRMS, please ensure you're using the following Requisition Templates on HRMS for processing student employees. This ensures students are being paid from your appropriate Accounts.
When selecting a Requisition Template, select the correct option below:

Students working 24hrs or less (For fall/winter/summer term contracts)
1. "NFT - Student - Work Study Contract" - Work Study Approved Student employees
2. "NFT - Student Contract (Non Work Study)" - Non Work Study Eligible Student employees (ie. international students or part-time students)

Students working 35hrs or more (For summer term contracts only)
1. "NFT - Appendix G (Summer Student) Work Study Contract" - Work Study Approved Student employees
2. "NFT - Appendix G (Summer Student) Contract" - Non Work Study Eligible Student employees (ie. international students or part-time students)

For more information about hiring using HRMS, please contact the HR Support Centre (416.675.5001) and/or visit humber.ca/hrms
