Occasionally, a department may hire an employee who is to be paid by the University and provide services to the university, yet will not physically work on the university campus. Regardless of where employees will physically perform their duties, if employed within the United States, the Form I-9 must be completed. (Note: this does not apply to individuals working outside the United States.)
The Remote Hire process and form have been designed to help employees fill out the Form I-9 even if they do not ever come to the St Cloud State University Campus.
An authorized agent must be assigned to complete the form for the University. It is the responsibility of the employee being hired to work with St Cloud State University to locate possible authorized representatives to assist in completion of the Form I-9. (For information or questions please contact Human Resources at 320-308-3203 or firstname.lastname@example.org.)
An authorized agent is someone that Human Resources authorizes to act as an agent for St Cloud State University, such as a notary public, attorney, outside personnel officer, etc. The agent should be chosen carefully because St Cloud State University will be held responsible for the actions of the agent.
