The University is required to verify "credentials or other information significantly related to job qualifications" (i.e., information about qualifications and experience used to make the employment decision) within 90 days after the date of initial employment for each person employed by the State. Some of this information may be verified in letters of recommendation for the candidate that have been provided by appropriate authorities. Verification of this information may be requested orally or in writing. (See Section XIII.G. Compliance with Requirements of External Agencies) In addition, the University is required to verify that all employees are eligible for employment in the United States.
