UT to Insource Custodial Services

The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, is moving all of its custodial services back in house, ending its agreements with outside cleaning contractors and hiring many of their employees. The transition to in-house custodial services is set to be complete by July 1, 2013, with the hiring of approximately 120 employees.

New Employees to be E-Verified

As of January 1, the University of Tennessee is required to “E-Verify” all new employees. E-Verify is an Internet-based system that allows an employer, using information reported on an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to determine the eligibility of that employee to work in the United States.
