Immigration Law Compliance

Spelman 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 current documentation establishing identity and employment eligibility. This must be done within the first three days of employment. If the required documents are not presented within this time frame, the employee will not be able to continue employment with Spelman College.

Former employees who are rehired must also complete the form if they have not completed an I-9 with Spelman within the past three years, or if their previous I-9 is no longer retained or valid.

Employees with questions or seeking more information on immigration law issues are encouraged to contact the Office of Human Resources. Employees may raise questions or concerns about immigration law compliance without fear of retaliation.
