Hiring Foreign Nationals

GUIDANCE ON HIRING AND PAYING FOREIGN NATIONALS AT TEACHERS COLLEGE

Teachers College often hires foreign nationals -- individuals who are neither U.S. citizens nor permanent residents -- to work at TC, either as employees or as independent contractors. Hiring foreign nationals is critical to our work and the College’s international focus. It is, however, governed by strict and often confusing immigration and tax regulations. This guidance is intended to help those who seek to hire foreign nationals.
