Why do I need to file? How does the process work?

In summary, the requirements as they apply to UAB are:

  • Persons whose base rate of pay at any time during the previous calendar year was $75,000 or more even if employment during the year was for a period as short as one day
  • Persons whose job includes purchasing or procurement authority
  • Individuals serving as a supervisor(UAB has chosen to identify these individuals as those who are documented as a supervisor in the HR Admin System)
  • Executive Assistants to leaders in the institution due to their access to highly confidential information.
  • Persons whose pay and benefits come primarily from UAB Hospital are exempt from the filing requirement.
