Policy 121 – Employment of Foreign Nationals

Date Issued: 10/80
Date Revised: 05/09

The U.S. Government requires employment authorization for all foreign nationals who enter this country to work. Foreign nationals already in this country may work depending upon the visa status they hold. Prior to hiring a foreign national in any capacity, the Office of Human Resources must verify employment authorization. HR Records will monitor employment restrictions imposed by the individual’s visa status and/or work authorization.

International Scholar & Student Services (ISSS) is available to provide guidance on the requirements for obtaining employment authorization. For additional information please visit their website at http://www.uab.edu/global/international-students-and-scholars.
