Immigration Status / Employment Eligibility

Date: March, 2017

It is the intent of the university to fully comply with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. This Act makes it illegal for employers to knowingly hire a non-resident who is not authorized to work in the United States or to continue to employ such an individual after finding out that he or she is not authorized. The law also requires verification of the employment authorization and identity of each person hired, including U.S. citizens. New employees are required to furnish, on or prior to their first day of work, appropriate documentation by completing an I-9 form with their department or with Human Resource Services. Non-resident alien status policies and procedures are coordinated by HRS Affirmative Action and Diversity Resources.
