The President or designee shall verify all new employees' and substitutes' right to work in the United States according to the Federal Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 as amended.

The Board reserves the right to:

  1. fix and prescribe the duties to be performed by all personnel;

  2. to create new positions;

  3. to specify the number of persons within each job category; and

  4. set the initial wage rate and number of hours and length of contract year for a new position when not covered by
    negotiated agreements.

In the exercise of its authority to create new positions, the Board shall give primary consideration to:

  1. the needs of students; and

  2. the operating needs of the College.

The Board may create a new position, increase the number of support staff in an existing position, or eliminate a position.
