The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 requires all new employees to present proof of eligibility to work in the United States within three (3) days of being hired. The Public Utility Commission participates in E-Verify and will provide the Social Security Administration (SSA) and, if necessary, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), with information from each new employee's Form I-9 to confirm work authorization.

Selective Service Registration

As of September 1, 1999, the Public Utility Commission is required by law (HB 558, 76th Legislature, 1999) to verify that all newly hired males, who are 18 to 25 years old, are registered for selective service. Human Resources will verify selective service registration with the Selective Service System on all male candidates selected for hire who fall in this age category. Candidates 18 to 25 years old who have not registered will be required to provide documentary proof of registration with the Selective Service System before the employment start date.
