Summary :  Reference for hiring managers who need to process a new hire that has accepted his/her offer.


Primary Information

    For Faculty and Staff:
    Once a candidate has accepted his/her offer of employment, a new hire Personnel Action Form (PAF) must be completed and submitted to TSS. Failure to do so in a timely manner may delay the ability for the new hire to be paid or enroll in benefits.
    The recruiters in HR initiate the ePAF for STAFF hires.  If the offer amount exceeds $5,000 of the amount on the requisition, HR will contact the Budget Center to work with the Department/EAD to identify funding.  HR will then submit the PAF to TSS.
    For FACULTY, please use the New Hire Personnel Action Form (PAF) linked here:  
    Personnel Action Form (PAF and ePAF)
    For Students, including Non-Tufts Students, and Temp Employees:
    Student and Temp Employee new hire processing can be done electronically through PeopleSoft HRMS. For instructions on how to process a student employee new hire, refer to the Time Entry & ePAF Manual.

    ePAF Student Worksheet  or ePAF Temporary Employee Worksheet can be filled out by someone in a Department who does not have access to ePAF to provide to another individual in the Department who does have access to ePAF to enter on his/her behalf. Or the Department may ask the Student/Temp to complete the Worksheet so that the person entering the ePAF has all of the required information to complete the Hire in ePAF.
