Subject: As of Sept. 1, UNTHSC must use the federal E-Verify program for all new employees

A new state law effective Sept. 1, 2015 requires UNTHSC to take additional steps to hire new employees. This law requires UNTHSC to use the federal E-Verify program for all new employees.

To comply with this new requirement it is important that every hiring manager make certain newly hired employees, including student employees, report to Campus Human Resources in EAD Room 280 to submit documentation required by Form I-9 within their first three days of work.

Campus HR will continue to collect and input Form I-9 information from newly hired employees and partner with the System HR Talent Acquisition team to ensure new employees are verified using the federal E-Verify electronic website.
