New Hire – Onboarding
If you are working for Harvey Mudd College for the first time, you will need to complete employment forms online to be added to payroll.
- Before you start work, see the department payroll supervisor or administrative staff.
- The department payroll supervisor or administrative staff member will submit new hire information to HR.
- You will be onboarded and will receive an email to complete employment forms online.
- After completing the forms online, present your original I-9 documents in person.
- Harvey Mudd Students – go to Kingston Hall Room 123 to see Chi Herrington.
- Non-Harvey Mudd Students – go to Kingston Hall Room 133 to see Eva Gomez.
- Once your onboarding file is complete, you will receive an email to confirm that you are on payroll with orientation information. You will then be able to log in, submit timesheets, and use the self-service features listed on this page.
Q: Do I need to show you my I-9 document? Can I send you a copy?
A: Federal employment regulations require that Form I-9 is completed and original documents have been verified by the employer to establish identity and employment authorization. Please review the list of acceptable documents (PDF). Scanned images and photocopies are not acceptable. If your documents are at home, you will need to have it sent to you immediately. This will delay your start date.
Q: What if I don’t complete the I-9 form and show documents?
A: If you are not able to present any of the documents to satisfy Form I-9, you are not permitted to work. There are no exceptions to this requirement.
Q: I don’t have a social security number. What should I do?
A: In order to get hired and paid in Workday, you will need to provide your social security number. If you need to apply for one, please email the HR staff to obtain an employment verification letter before going to the social security office. This will delay your start date.

Lost or Damaged Paychecks
If you lost your paycheck, email email@example.com to inform us that you’ve lost your check along with the date of issue and amount. There will be a waiting period of five business days during which your lost check is cancelled and a new check will be issued. If you should find the original check anytime after requesting a reissued check, you must forfeit the check to the Office of Human Resources as it is no longer valid.
If your paycheck is damaged (ex: ripped, ran through the washer/dryer), we can reissue a new check within 1–2 business days as long as the original check is presented to Human Resources. If you are unable to present the original check, the five-day waiting period will apply.
- Work hours must be recorded on the actual dates and times worked.
- Meal period(s) must be recorded onto the timesheet to reflect the start and end times of the meal period. Review the video tutorial (start at 1:32) on how to enter meal periods.
- Meal period must be taken before the start of the fifth hour (4:59).
- See HMC Employment Policies section for additional information regarding meal periods.
- When your timesheet is complete for the pay period, be sure to approve your timesheet. Please refer to the payroll calendar in the above section for deadlines.
- All employees are expected to submit timesheets on time. Please refer to the payroll calendar for deadlines.
- If you missed the deadline to submit timesheet(s) or need to report additional hours from a previous pay period, you will need to pick up a paper timesheet in Kingston Hall 123 to fill out and submit to your supervisor who will enter old hours as a historical edit in Kronos.
It is recommended that students do not work more than 20 hours per week. If you think you will incur overtime, obtain approval from your supervisor prior to the overtime. In California, the overtime provisions are:
- over eight hours worked in any workday, or
- over 40 hours worked in any workweek (Saturday through Friday), or
- seven days consecutively worked in a workweek (Saturday through Friday)
If you have multiple jobs on campus, the combined total of hours worked in a day or week will apply. Please see the Harvey Mudd College Employment Policies section below for more information.

Meal Break Policy
- Student employees who work more than five (5) consecutive hours in a workday are provided an unpaid, duty-free meal period of at least 30 minutes. If an employee works more than 10 hours in a workday, a second unpaid meal period of at least 30 minutes must be taken. Depending on the circumstances, an employee may be able to waive the second meal period.
- The meal period should begin prior to the start of the fifth hour of work. Employees are required to enter the time the meal period begins and ends on timesheets. Review timesheet requirements and video tutorial in the Timesheets section above.
- The meal period cannot be combined with or added to rest breaks, and it cannot be used to cover a late arrival to work or to leave early.
- If for any reason an employee is unable to take or does not take a meal period, a supervisor should be notified. If an employee is required to work during the meal period, the employee must be paid for the time worked and one additional hour at the employee’s regular pay rate, regardless of the length of the meal period.
In California, overtime is considered when working more than eight hours in a workday, more than 40 hours in a workweek (Saturday through Friday), or seven days consecutively in a workweek. Such occurrences are compensated at one and one-half times his or her regular rate of pay.
Harvey Mudd College’s policy is that a nonexempt employee may only work overtime with prior approval from the supervisor, unless the overtime is due to an emergency in which case the employee is expected to notify his/her supervisor as soon as possible after working the overtime.
Guidelines for work shifts:
- Work eight hours or less per day (total combined if you have multiple jobs on campus)
- Work 40 hours or less per week (total combined if you have multiple jobs on campus)
- Do not work more than six days consecutively within a workweek (Saturday through Friday)
