Postdoc registration and appointment for payroll purposes are separate processes. The Postdoctoral Office handles only the admission/registration of postdocs on the McGill student registration system, and does not have access to payroll systems. It is the sole responsibility of the department/research unit to process appointment forms of newly-registered and continuing postdocs for the payment of stipends.
Each unit should designate an administrator(s) responsible for general postdoc affairs and the appointment of postdocs through the appropriate payroll system. Postdocs should be appointed for payroll purposes through the usual payroll systems of McGill, the hospital or the affiliated Institute. Payroll issues should be resolved locally.
The Postdoctoral Office does NOT require copies of appointment forms to process registration. It is now the responsibility of the unit to ensure that the level of stipend meets the minimum yearly dollar amount specified by GPS or the funding agency.
