NOTICE: SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL BE REQUIRED TO SHOW PROOF THAT THEY ARE ELIGIBLE TO WORK IN THE UNITED STATES UNDER U.S. IMMIGRATION LAW.
The Personnel Rules of the Executive Branch of Wyoming State Government provide:
Appointment of Non-U.S. Citizens.
- Every time an agency hires any person, the agency must complete an Immigration and Naturalization Service Form I-9 to verify that the person is eligible to work in the United States. Agencies must carefully follow the Immigration and Naturalization Service Handbook for Employers in completing the I-9 form.
- If the person hired is an alien, the appointment must be in compliance with all State and federal laws and regulations, including the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 and the Immigration Act of 1990. An alien is any person who is not a citizen or national of the United States.
- Agencies shall only appoint persons authorized to work, either temporarily or permanently, in the United States.
- When an employee's work authorization expires, the agency must verify the employee's employment eligibility. The employee must present a document that shows either an extension of the employee's initial employment authorization or new work authorization. If the employee cannot provide proof of current work authorization, the agency may not continue to employ that person.
- No agency shall be a sponsor or petitioner on behalf of any temporary alien without the express written consent of the Governor or authorized representative of the Governor.
- No agency may contract with or permit a third party (e.g., a law firm) to petition any federal agency to change an alien's immigration status without prior consultation with the Attorney General's Office and the written approval of the Governor or the Governor's authorized representative.
