1.03 Employment of Aliens
This policy describes the University’s obligations under federal and state law regarding the employment of aliens and outlines an alien employee’s responsibility to demonstrate their legal eligibility to work.
Origination date: 10/1/93
Revised: 12/22/1999, 1/1/2000
Applicability: All Employees
All University employees must be either citizens of the United States or persons legally authorized to work in the United States. Notwithstanding any other provision of University Policy to the contrary, an alien employee whose visa has expired or who is otherwise no longer legally permitted to work at the University may be terminated without other cause or notice.
Immigration Reform and Control Act
As mandated by the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, all University employees are required to provide proof of identity and eligibility to work in the United States. This documentation must be provided either prior to commencing work or on the first day of employment. Failure to provide the required documentation may result in termination. Employees may not work for or receive compensation from the University prior to complying with this requirement.
Expiration of Alien Employment Eligibility
Each employee is responsible for notifying Human Resources if there is a change in the employee’s legal status. Failure to properly notify the University of such change may result in termination of employment. Human Resources is responsible for re-verifying an alien’s employment eligibility upon expiration of the alien’s employment authorization documents.
