PostSubject: Application materials   Tue Sep 29, 2009 9:38 am

I was at a training session last Thursday with an attorney from Minneapolis. During this session we talked about the application process, interviews, checking with references, etc. At the conclusion of this topic she stated "By law, you need to keep all of these materials for one year". This includes all applications for the position, interview notes, background checks received, references checks, all of it. I know here at the library, I have kept everything from any of the interviews we have done. Now I know I have to keep them for one year, and then can dispose of. This workshop was a wealth of information. It was one every employer should have been to. Unfortunately, it was sponsored by the system libraries for libraries only. Good topic to have.

PostSubject: Reference checks?   Tue Sep 29, 2009 8:42 pm

I was curious. What is the libraries position on reference checks? Are you supposed to call the references?

I understood that references are supposed to verify that the applicant is of good character. What is the purpose of the reference check according to the library's procedures?

but as long as the presses can be protected,
we may trust to them for light.
