Frequently Asked Questions

Please email the Employment Services team and your our team lead will be happy to help.

Please submit unique requests per position/employee. For example, if you need to recruit for two positions in your department, please create separate requests for each. This will allow for the most accurate tracking and reporting.

The Employment Services team is designed to cover of all departments regardless of an individual team member’s absence to ensure continuity in the processing of HR eRequests. For assistance with HR processes not included in the HR eRequest system (e.g., terminations or any other questions you may have), please email the Employment Services team to ensure your email is answered in the most timely manner possible.

The HR eRequest training materials include information about checking position budget and default compensation in GMS. The Georgetown Law Financial Affairs team can assist with budgetary information.

Please complete the Law Center’s Hoya Hiring form and email it to for student positions and hiring. Please submit student hiring paperwork at least 5 business days prior to student employee’s start date.

Managers, Department Administrators and HR eRequesters can submit HR eRequests. Please contact the Employment Services team if you do not currently have one of these roles but have been tasked with creating an HR eRequest.

Approved eRequests will route through the remaining GMS approval steps (HR services and Classification and Compensation) in no more than two business days. Various factors can impact the processing time for financial approvals (i.e., Finance Officer and CFO). The Employment Services team will contact you to adjudicate any budgetary concerns if they are impacting the processing time of your request. Please note that Law Center’s eRequests are collected on a weekly basis each Friday at noon, and reviewed on Wednesday of the following week. This review meeting may add additional days to the approval process.

GMS will produce an automated notification when your HR eRequest has been fully approved. Please note that the HR eRequest process is an approval process only, and your HRC will use that information to create a position, post a job, etc. These subsequent business processes take no more than 2 business days to complete.

Managers and Department Administrators can view all of the HR eRequests they have submitted using the GU Find HR eRequest report in GMS (new window).

Managers and Department Administrators can contact with any questions about process or policy.

Please email the Employment Services team and your HRC will be happy to help coordinate assistance.
