SMU’s I-9 Process When Hiring Students, Adjunct Faculty, or Temporary Staff

Are you in the process of hiring or have you recently hired a new employee?

Did you know that hiring employees without a valid I-9 on file is a violation of federal regulations and fines may be assessed if the University is found out of compliance?

To ensure our compliance with the law, please follow these guidelines:

  • On the first day of work, send your new employee to the Department of Human Resources with the New Hire Checklist, found in the corresponding New Hire Packet. HR will initial the checklist to indicate that the new hire is authorized to work. 
  • Only original, unexpired documents are accepted.
  • Don’t Delay!  Employees cannot work until an I-9 is completed.

The Department of Human Resources is located at Expressway Tower, Suite 200, 6116 N. Central Expressway, Dallas, TX 75206.

Hours are 8:30 am – 5:00 pm daily.  Please ask your employee to arrive no later than 4:30 pm to facilitate the processing of the I-9 by an HR Customer Service Representative.

Questions?  Give us a call at 214-768-3311.
