Verifying Credentials and Reference Checks

Prior to an interview, candidates should complete and sign the RF Employment Application.  By doing so, the applicant gives you permission to check references and obtain information from previous employers. Before an applicant is hired, references and credentials should be checked. When alicense or certificate is required for a position, the applicant must provide the original document (including the license number and expiration date). Locations must also verify the authenticity of the license or certificate before the person is allowed to perform services as an employee.

 

Offer Letter

All communication with applicants and offers of employment (verbal and written) must be consistent with funding and sponsor rules, RF policy, and legal requirements. When offers of employment are made, applicants must be made aware that employment with the Research Foundation is subject to the availability of funds and program needs and that there is no expressed or implied guarantee of employment retention. An offer of RF employment is contingent on the prospective employee providing documentation that establishes proof of identity and of eligibility to work in the United States.

 

All Research Foundation Offer Letters must be prepared on RF stationery, forwarded to Research Foundation Human Resources and retained in the employee's personnel file.
