A UAB employee is an individual providing services to UAB for compensation, other than as an independent contractor. UAB employee assignments are established via the processing of a “New Hire ACT Document” in the Oracle Administrative Systems. Individuals with an active employee assignment are compensated with taxable, W-2 reportable income. An individual can legitimately have multiple employee assignments, but only if the facts of the case do support identification of two distinctly different activities and relationships to UAB.
