4-4-11 - Reference Check Update

As we continue to review the list of paperwork that must accompany hiring paperwork, we have determined that the requirement to submit a reference check form prior to processing paperwork should be eliminated. We will continue to accept letters of reference when required by the search and will also continue to conduct background screening for all new hires.
Search committees and all administrators responsible for reviewing and approving hiring recommendations should be particularly mindful of the continued requirement to conduct appropriate and thorough reference checks of any recommended job candidate. Documentation that such reference contacts have been made and a summary of relevant findings related to reference checks of candidates should be maintained with search records in a separate and secure departmental file for a period of three (3) years.
Questions should be referred to your HRM Generalist.
