Central Administration has seen multiple instances where the question on the Traineeship Form “Is the payment for a current UofU Employee?” has been answered incorrectly (i.e. “No” when it should be “Yes”).
For those completing this form, you are asked to always double check and verify if a student receiving a payment is also a University employee. Incorrectly answering that a student is not an employee, when the student is, has the potential to lead to consequences that might negatively impact the student (with the IRS), your department and/or the University (with the IRS and the Award Sponsor), and delay the payment to the student.
Please ASK US if you have any questions.
