[COVID-19] HR employee FAQ - Recruitment during COVID-19

This informational guide informs candidates for employment on the safeguards they should consider for returning to on-campus interviews.

UWL will resume in-person interviews on July 20, 2020, should the search committee(s) desire.  

How are Open Meetings Impacted for My Department or Search Committee?

Can I/Search Committee(s) continue to Recruit and Hire Candidates?

Yes.  We are delaying all on-site interviews until April 10, 2020 - at the earliest.  Search Committees may continue to interview using remote technology for both distance and local interviews.  If the committee deems appropriate, they may also hire without having interviewed the candidate on-site.

Do new employees still have to provide physical documentation for the I-9?

No. DHS has relaxed the in-person requirement.  Read more here.
