Archives—January 2015

It’s tax time again and where can I get my W-2’s, you ask?

Employees can consent now to receive an electronic W-2 form

 

Michigan Tech employees can consent to receive an electronic copy of their 2014 Form W-2 instead of a mailed paper copy.

If you have already consented to receive an electronic Form W-2 in the past, your selection is still in effect and you do not need to take any action to receive your Form W-2 electronically.

To consent to receive your Form W-2 electronically, log in to Banweb (www.banweb.mtu.edu) and click the Employees box, then Tax Forms, and then

Select Electronic W-2 Consent. Follow the prompt to provide electronic W-2 consent.

If you consent to receive your Form W-2 electronically, your 2014 Form W-2 will be available on Banweb on or before January 23, 2015. A reminder e-mail will be sent at that time.

By choosing the electronic Form W-2, employees will:

  • Avoid having sensitive W-2 information delivered via U.S. mail.
  • Earlier access to the Form W-2.
  • Access can be attained anywhere there is internet access.
  • Help reduce the use of natural resources associated with large-scale printing and mailing, and reduce postage costs.

Alternatively, all paper Form W-2s will be mailed by January 30, 2015 to employees who do not elect to receive their Form W-2 electronically. To ensure prompt delivery by the U.S. Postal Service, a current mailing address must be correct and on file.

To view/update your current mailing address, log in to Banweb and click the Personal Information box, then Update Address(es) and Phone(s).  Mailed Form W-2 will be sent to the W2 address within Banweb.  If a W-2 address does not exist, the Form W-2 will be sent to the Mailing address on file.


Supervisor Training Series

Human Resources’ six module Supervisor Training Series has been streamlined and will be offered again in 2015. It is expected that all supervisors at Michigan Tech complete the now three part series:
 
▪ Part One: Services and Function of Human Resources and the Office of Institutional Equity
 
▪ Part Two: Day to Day Supervision
 
▪ Part Three: Maximizing Performance
 
If you have previously completed one or more of these sessions, you will not need to retake the session. Although, if you are interested in attending again for a refresher, please feel free to sign up. 
 
Please visit http://www.mtu.edu/hr/current/training-events/ to register for the Supervisor Training session(s) you need to complete.
The Supervisor Training Series is open to all other employees as well. If you have a staff member who is not listed as a supervisor, but would benefit from one or more of the sessions in this training, please encourage them to register.
If you have additional questions about this training or your requirements, please contact Human Resources Employment Services at 906-487-2280.
