Employment Forms

Starting with the Fall 2013 semester, any questions related to employment, payroll, and other procedures can  be directed to Audrey Glassman or Susan Santangelo.

New Adjuncts


After the Registrar releases the Class Schedule, New Adjuncts will receive a Welcome Packet in the mail containing instructions and employment forms. Please make an appointment with Susan Santangelo or Audrey Glassman to submit all completed paperwork and to present the I-9 acceptable form(s) of identification. Below is a complete list of documents you may be asked to submit:

Returning Adjuncts


Returning Adjuncts (defined as those who have taught within the last two calendar years) generally do not need to resubmit New Adjunct paperwork, unless there has been a change in legal or tax information. Please note that any Permanent Address changes resulting in a different tax jurisdiction requires a Personal Change Form AND a new set of W-4 and IT-2104 Tax Forms.

  • Adjunct Instructional Staff Contract (above) — automatically renewed on your behalf, upon your proposal to teach
  • W-4 or IT-2104 Tax Forms (above) — for updating your tax withholding amounts or Permanent Address in a different tax jurisdiction
  • Direct Deposit Form (above) — for updating your bank account
  • Personal Change Form — for updating your name, marital status, social security number, and contact information for HR/Payroll purposes

Administrators Teaching as Adjuncts


There is generally no need for Administrators Teaching as Adjuncts to resubmit paperwork. The forms below are generally completed on your behalf, and are available for you to review.

  • Adjunct Instructional Staff Contract
  • Approval for Administrators to Teach

Co-Teachers


If you anticipate having one or more additional instructors co-teaching 25% or more of the class sessions for a particular course, you must obtain approval from Sheila Foster, the Vice Dean of Academic Affairs at sfoster@law.fordham.edu.

If their names are not reflected on the Class Schedule, please contact Audrey Glassman at aglassman@law.fordham.edu. We appreciate your cooperation in ensuring the accuracy of our official Class Schedule, which is a primary reference in managing electronic access, building security, teaching activity, and many other internal processes.

Whether or not they are receiving compensation, all co-teachers must have a teaching contract, and must undergo the same employment process with Audrey Glassman. If there is compensation, it is generally evenly split between all the instructors, or based on their credit-hour contribution to the course.

Guest Lecturers


A co-teacher is distinguished from a guest lecturer, in that the latter generally only teaches 1-2 class sessions, and has a specialization that supplements the course requirements.

Guest lecturers may include a law librarian or a WestLaw/TWEN representative providing a refresher workshop on legal research for a course that requires a term paper. If the primary instructor is unexpectedly out 1-2 class sessions due to an illness or emergency, last-minute substitutes are generally considered guest lecturers as well.

Guest lecturers do not have to submit employment forms, and can be signed in by the primary instructor at the Security Desk. Guest lecturers arriving at the building alone should coordinate with the Law Security Desk in advance at 212.636.6975.
