2,590: Documents Needed for New Academic and Administrative Appointments

Revised: March 2009

The dean's or vice president's office submits to Human Resources (HR) all required documents as specified on the New Hire Checklist-Faculty or the Rehire Checklist-Faculty located on the University's Human Resources Website. HR reviews the forms for accuracy and completion and notifies the dean's or vice president's office of any discrepancies. HR distributes a copy of the PAF to the Payroll Office.

HR will attempt to verify academic credentials upon receipt of hiring documents. If the academic credentials cannot be verified, HR will notify the faculty member that an official transcript of their highest degree must be submitted within 30 days of the faculty member's first day of employment.

In lieu of official transcripts physicians may request a letter in good standing from the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners to be sent directly to the University of Nevada, School of Medicine Human Resources Department within 30 calendar days from the effective date of employment.

Falsification or misrepresentation of credentials, or evidence that degrees offered in support of candidacy for employment have been issued from non-accredited institutions, shall invalidate the employment contract and shall be grounds for immediate termination. The provisions of Title 2, Chapter 6, do not apply when employment is terminated under these circumstances. Letters of recommendation received for the candidate during the recruitment do not become part of the personnel file.
