New Background Check Policy for both Faculty and Staff Positions effective 3/1/16
The University endeavors to provide a safe environment for all members of the University Community. An important part of this effort is the University’s process for screening candidates for employment and when appropriate, for reviewing employees for continuation of employment. To support this goal, the Human Resources Department has partnered with the Office of the Provost to implement a background check policy that will be used to guide the hiring processes for both faculty and staff positions. This policy is now available on the Human Resources website in the Employee Policies section and is effective March 1, 2016. If you are involved in the hiring process for Faculty and/or Staff, you are required to become familiar with this policy.
Please note: All offers of employment, for both Faculty and Staff positions, are contingent upon the successful completion of a background check.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Staffing & Recruitment Department - Human Resources (ext. 22730).
