The Immigration Act of 1990 imposes strict federal regulations on employers regarding the employment of non-United States Citizens. To comply with the law, the identity and eligibility of anyone hired by Western Illinois University must be verified following an offer of employment. The I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification form must be completed, regardless of assumed or reported nationality. Non-U.S. citizens must provide a visa type that permits him/her to complete the Employment Eligibility Verification form, which results in remuneration for work performed. If the individual is not within the proper visa status, no remuneration will be generated. For further information, please contact the Academic Personnel Officer at (309)298-2216.
The department should store all applicant files, including search-related materials, securely for a minimum period of three years from date of hire. After three years, all documents must be shredded according to the Illinois State Records Act.
