As someone involved in hiring new employees, you have an important role in shaping the future of NIU. The hiring process varies depending on the position’s classification. Guidelines are in place throughout the process to ensure that it’s unbiased, fair and inclusive.
The following people may be involved in the hiring process:
NIU is committed to hiring employees who will enhance our community of diverse people, ideas and services and has established procedures and guidelines to further this goal. One way NIU complies with affirmative action and equal opportunity (AAEO) requirements is by collecting and storing recruitment information. Some information is stored by PeopleAdmin. The hiring department must collect and store the rest on the AAEO Help and Support site.
NIU complies with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. This act makes it illegal for us to knowingly hire a nonresident who isn't authorized to work in the U.S. or to continue to employ someone after finding out they're not authorized.
We must verify the identity and employment authorization of all hires. New employees must provide appropriate documentation by completing an I-9 form on or before their first day of work. NIU provides I-9 information to E-Verify, the federal government’s online system, to confirm employment eligibility.
