EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY/AFFIRMATIVE ACTION EMPLOYER
As an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer, it is the policy of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio to promote and ensure equal employment opportunity for all individuals without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, sexual orientation, disability, or veteran status.  The University is committed to the Affirmative Action Program in compliance with all government requirements to ensure nondiscrimination.

 

ACCOMMODATION REQUEST

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is committed to providing reasonable accommodation to ensure equal access to employment opportunities for qualified individuals with disabilities. We are committed to assuring that a qualified individual with a disability has the same rights and privileges in employment as non-disabled employees. If an accommodation is requested for the job application process, please inform the Employment Office in person or at (210) 567-2600.

 

ELIGIBILITY FOR EMPLOYMENT AND WORK AUTHORIZATION

If you are a citizen or national of the U.S. or a lawful Permanent Resident, you are eligible for employment. If you are an alien (not a citizen or national of the U.S. or lawful Permanent Resident), your eligibility for employment is dependent upon your visa status. If you have any questions regarding your visa status, please call the Health Science Center International Services Office at (210) 567-6241.

Any offer of employment is contingent upon your completing the Immigration and Naturalization Service Employment eligibility Verification (Form I-9) and providing documents to verify your identity and employment eligibility as required by law. On first day of employment, a new hired employee is required to attest that he or she is a citizen or national of the U.S., a lawful Permanent Resident or an alien authorized to work. All new employees will be required to produce documentation as required by law.

 

SECURITY BACKGROUND CHECK

In accordance with The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio policy, job candidates for all Health Science Center positions must undergo a criminal background check before a job offer is made and before the candidate can begin to work. The criminal background check applies to job candidates for all positions including: faculty; classified; administrative and professional; student employees; and fellows. Criminal background checks will be conducted as part of the selection process and must be completed before the job offer to the candidate is made.

 

SELECTIVE SERVICE REQUIREMENTS

If you are a male U.S. citizen or male alien living in the U.S., and are 18 through 25 years of age, you are required to register with the federal Selective Service, unless you meet certain exemptions under Selective Service law. Non-citizens not required to register include men who are in the U.S. on student or visitor visas.

Under HB 558, enacted by the 76th Texas State Legislature, if you are currently of the age and gender requiring registration with Selective Service, but not registered, you are ineligible for employment with the Health Science Center. Any offer of employment is contingent on your compliance with Selective Service law.

If you are not registered as required, you should register promptly at a United State Post Office. A Certificate of Mailing may be obtained from the Post Office at such time that you mail your registration and may be used as proof of your application until you receive your Selective Service Registration Card.
