Locally-Funded Employee Forms
Please refer to the Payroll Costs Sheet for wage and benefit cost information. This includes updated information for 2018.
The forms below are needed any time a new employee is hired. Please be sure to update any master forms your school or church may keep on file, as some of these forms have changed. Additional paperwork is necessary if an employee will be working more than 20 hours per week on a regular basis, as they will be eligible for retirement benefits. Please contact the Human Resources Department at 503.850.3510 if you are planning to hire a minor, or have any other questions. If you plan to mail the completed forms, we find it is often helpful to talk through the forms before mailing to make sure everything is correctly filled out.
Completed paperwork for should be faxed to Keri Self at 503.850.3410 or mailed to the following address:
Attn: Human Resources
Oregon Conference of SDA
