Effective Sept. 28, 2016, The University of Akron is required to follow regulations for Ohio Public Employees Retirement System (OPERS). Regulations require that we have independent contractors (speakers, service payments, officials etc.) sign an Independent Contractor/Worker Acknowledgment form. This form is to be completed if an individual begins providing personal services to a public employer and is not considered to be a public employee. The signed form is acknowledgement by that individual that they will not have contributions made to OPERS. Any questions regarding this form, please call ext. 6559 or ext. 7090. Once completed, the form must be printed, signed and dated by the independent contractor and sent with other University required paperwork: agreements, W9s, etc. This form is listed with the University Services Agreements as well as the Honorarium Form on the Controller’s website.
