New Hire Onboarding - FT

Welcome to the Winthrop University Family. We are excited that you are joining the University.
For your convenience, Winthrop University utilizes an online onboarding system to deliver onboarding tasks to new employees, which allows you to complete most of your new hire documentation prior to your first day on campus. Additionally, the system will help you manage your tasks easily.
Through an interactive experience, the onboarding checklist(s) include a range of tasks from
requesting critical employment data, reading key policies, enrolling in state insurance and
retirement benefits, and completing federal forms as listed below.

Task Description
W-4 Complete the federal tax form (Form W-4) so that Winthrop can withhold the correct federal income tax from your pay. If no response is received for federal withholdings, defaults may be set accordingly. Once you have completed the form please select “save”.
SC W-4 Complete South Carolina’s W-4 so that Winthrop can withhold the correct state income tax from your pay. If no response is received for state withholdings, defaults may be set accordingly.
If you work remotely, and do not come to a campus in South Carolina, then you must submit the W-4 for the state where you reside and perform the work.
