International employees are individuals employed by University of Wisconsin-Parkside who are not citizens of the United States.
International employees must come to Human Resources, Tallent Hall 202, to complete their W-4 and Form I-9.
International employees must complete all information on the W4 form for tax purposes. Please read the instructions thoroughly before completing the form, including but not limited to the following:
International employees are categorized as non-resident aliens or resident aliens for tax purposes based on several factors (including the amount of time they have spent in the U.S.).
Glacier, a tax compliance software, will determine appropriate taxation of the International employee's University of Wisconsin-Parkside earnings. All International employees receiving funds through University payroll must provide their visa/immigration history through Glacier.
Once the employee's appointment is entered into the Human Resources System (HRS) and they have a student or staff email account, emails will be sent to them from firstname.lastname@example.org (Glacier). The International employee must activate their Glacier account and enter their visa/immigration history.
Following their Glacier entry, they will need to mail all Glacier-generated reports and tax treaty forms, along with their immigration document photocopies to the address provided on their Glacier report.
International employees can print all forms and bring to Human Resources, Tallent Hall 202, if they would prefer Human Resources to mail the packet.
a Glacier Account?
All International employees (non U.S. citizens on payroll) must have a Glacier Account.
Be sure to check your junk mail folder if the Glacier emails are late in
If you do not receive your Glacier emails before your appointment starts, confirm with Human Resources (262.595.2204) that your paid appointment has been entered in the system. If your appointment is in the system and you have not received your Glacier emails yet, contact Human Resources Front Desk.
What is the Deadline for Completing My Glacier
You should complete your Glacier entry and mail the documents within 5 days of your start date. We DO NOT recommend emailing your Glacier documents, as they contain sensitive data.
International employees who do not have a social security number and expect to receive wages through the University of Wisconsin-Parkside payroll system should apply for a social security number in person at the Social Security Administration office (see Kenosha and Racine locations below). The social security number is used to track earning histories of those who work in U.S.
International employees should not begin working and should anticipate delays in pay if they have not yet received a social security number.
