Western Carolina University Office of Human Resources presents EPA-PAF’s Personnel Action Forms
What is an EPA PAF A PAF (Personnel Action Form) is a human resources form that is completed by the employee’s department when you hire or separate an EPA employee or change your EPA employee’s employment in some way* New permanent hires resulting from a search do not require a PAF. These searched positions are handled in the on-line employment system via the hiring proposal. There is more information on this at the end of this presentation. *Note: There are similar action forms for SPA personnel actions, but this discussion is for EPA actions only. You can contact the Office of Human Resources at X7218 for additional information on SPA actions.
