Immigration Law Compliance
Wilkes University is committed to employing only United States citizens and aliens who are authorized to work in the United States and does not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of citizenship or national origin.
In compliance with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, each new employee, as a condition of employment, must complete the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 and present documentation establishing identity and employment eligibility prior to commencing employment. Former employees who are rehired must also complete the form if they have not completed an I-9 with Wilkes University within the past three years, or if their previous I-9 is no longer retained or valid.
Supervisors and managers are expected to ensure that a new employee has complied with the IRCA employment requirements and has documented their employment eligibility with the Human Resources Development Office.
Employees with questions or seeking more information on immigration law issues are encouraged to contact the Human Resources Development Office. Employees may raise questions or complaints about immigration law compliance without fear of reprisal.
