Staff Hiring & Student Employment

Salary and Hiring Freezes

There will be no merit increases for Fiscal Year 2021. Pay increases associated with faculty promotions will continue. Any other salary adjustment requires the approval from the Provost and Chief Operating Officer.

Faculty searches and hiring for staff positions are frozen. Exceptions will be made for hires essential for our clinical, research or educational mission, and all exceptions require approval from the Provost and Chief Operating Officer.

How do I request an exception to the Hiring Freeze?

As of April 15, 2020, Faculty searches and hiring for staff positions are frozen. Exceptions will be made for hires essential for our clinical, research or educational mission, and all exceptions require approval from the Provost and Chief Operating Officer.

Essential positions being submitted through HCM iReKREWT must contain the answers to the following questions inserted into the “NOTES” section of the vacancy.

  • Is this position a current need?  Explain.
  • Is the position critical to current operations? Explain.
  • Is this funded by a 5-ledger or other grant account?
  • What is projected estimated salary?
  • Can hiring for this position be delayed? Explain.

This information is key to the review and approval process with the Budget Office, Provost, and Chief Operating Officer. Please note that vacancies without this information will be returned to the initiator.

Staff Orientation for approved positions is conducted via Zoom every Friday.

Student Employment

In response to the COVID-19 University update, the Student Employment office recommends student supervisors follow these guidelines:

  • Tulane is doing everything possible to reduce the concentration of people on campus and at our workplaces. Our intention is to allow as many of our student employees as possible to work remotely, while continuing to carry out the essential work of the University. Students may continue to work on-site for critical work that may not be performed remotely.  Students should contact their supervisors to discuss any modifications to shifts, schedules or remote work possibilities. See the Transition to Remote Work document for more guidance.
  • Students being paid by stipend will receive their full stipend. Departments do not need to take any actions.
  • Students looking for work should contact the Student Employment Office, SEHR@tulane.edu or 504-247-1700 for assistance.
  • If students report any illnesses, please encourage them to stay home and to contact their health provider as needed.

For more information, see the Student Employees FAQs in the Coronavirus Employee Resources page.
