2.3.3 Employment Authorization

Neither supervisors nor department heads have the authority to offer employment to any applicant(s).  Hiring authority is vested in the President and/or the Board of the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL).  Some employment relationships and contracts require Board approval.  A valid contract or employment offer can only be created consistent with JSU and IHL policy when actual authority exists.
All offers of employment are conditional, subject to satisfactory results of background investigations, reference checks, and sufficient documentation to verify identity and authorization to work in the United States as required by the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA).
