Employer Policies | Career Services

The Augusta University Career Services Department reserves the right to restrict employer services and corroborate with appropriate authorities should we encounter suspected violations of equal employment opportunity laws or this policy in the use of our services.

No solicitation of goods or services is allowed in conjunction with Augusta University's Career Services Department in recruiting personnel. Recruiting practices must follow affirmative action/equal opportunity guidelines. The Career Services Department supports and endorses the NACE Guide to Principles for Professional Conduct

Employment agencies recruiting for specific client-based vacancies are welcome to post their openings with Augusta University Career Services and to work with career services staff to recruit for specific hiring needs. As a state educational agency, we are not concerned with obtaining the name of the client in order to compete for services. However, we do reserve the right to confidentially request the name of the employer from the agency to ensure there is no conflict of interest with current services already being provided. This will only be requested when the office suspects our services are already being utilized by the same client.

The following is a standard format of an employer nondiscrimination policy statement that you might include in job descriptions posted for our students.

The [name of employer] is committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all persons regardless of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, citizenship status (as defined under the Immigration Reform and Control Act), disability, or veterans status. [Note: Including protected categories that are found in specific state laws, such as marital status or sexual orientation. ]

Equal employment opportunity extends to all aspects of the employment relationship including recruiting, interviewing, selection, hiring, transfers, promotions, training, terminations, working conditions, compensation, benefits, and other terms and conditions of employment.

The [name of employer] complies with federal and state equal employment opportunity laws and strives to keep the workplace free from all forms of harassment, including sexual harassment. The commitment to a harassment free environment extends to the hiring process. The [name of employer] considers harassment of all forms to be a serious offense.

The Career Services Department reserves the right to restrict any employer from our services on the basis of faulty recruitment practices, inability to comply with office or campus policies, failure to adhere to state and federal employment guidelines, or in an attempt to act in the best interest of student safety as determined by campus administration. The Augusta University Career Services Department also reserves the right to refuse employers from services if they use multi-level marketing plans as a means of developing business (Commission only programs with a "fee" to students to purchase a product and then sell the product and recruit others to do the same). All employers are subjected to comply with our nondiscrimination policy as outlined below.
