Background Investigation

No job is offered until the applicant has successfully passed a criminal background check.

Verification of Employment Eligibility

Federal immigration law requires all employers to verify both the identity and employment eligibility of all persons hired to work in the United States. This agency participates in the E-Verify Program established by the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration. Participation in the program by OESC does not exempt this agency from the obligation to complete a Form I-9 for all employees hired by OESC. During the hiring process, all new hires are required to provide proof of identity and employment eligibility.
