1.5 Employment Eligibility Certification

(IMMIGRATION REFORM AND CONTROL ACT OF 1986, PUBLIC LAW 94-603)

In accordance with Federal law, all new University employees are required to complete a Form I-9 Employment Eligibility Certification and provide verification (by designated documents) of citizenship/resident status, identity, and authorization to work.

Citizens and permanent residents are required to appear at the Employment Services Department and non-immigrants at the University International Services Office for the processing of the Employment Eligibility Certification form prior to the start of employment.

Employing administrators are required to consult with the International Services-Student Affairs Office concerning immigration/control regulations, visas, and work restrictions before considering persons on non-immigrant visas for University employment, and to obtain their approval before making an offer for employment.

Employees who begin work, in violation of this policy, prior to employment eligibility clearance will not be paid for such service until completion of the I-9 and are not eligible for a salary advance until the I-9 is completed.
