2. All employees must be fingerprinted.

  • A. Fingerprinting information is provided on the Human Resources website via a link on the Employment Processing page.
  • B. If fingerprint results are on file in another school district and were taken one (1) year ago or less, the new employee will have to complete a fingerprint release form included with the HVS employment packet.

3. The new employee can obtain a HVS employment packet is located below.

  • A. Documents associated with four separate links must be accessed and printed
    • 1. HVS Employment Forms (HVS Employment Forms-Students, if applicable)
    • 2. IRS W-4
    • 3. Michigan W-4
    • 4. Employment Eligibility Form (I-9)

4. The new employee must complete Global Compliance Network training for Blood borne Pathogens and Hazardous Communication online. An instruction form will be included in the employment packet. The employee should print a certificate for each topic upon completion of the online training and attach the certificates to the employment packet.

5. The completed forms, along with a valid driver’s license and Social Security card, should be brought in to Human Resources.

6. Prepare a HVS Change of Status (COS) Form for New Employees and submit it to Human Resources electronically, by fax or through interschool mail separately or attached to the completed employment packet.

Once all of the above steps have been completed, the following will occur:

Human Resources will review all documents associated with the new employee. If any required document is missing, the new employee and hiring building/department will be notified and the packet will be held until it is complete.

If a fingerprint release form was completed, it will be processed and the employment packet will be held pending the receipt of the fingerprint results.

HVS Human Resources will process the forms and contact the hiring building/department via email to provide clearance for the new employee to start working. The Technology Department will be notified by HR to set up accounts.

Family Medical Leave Act

The Federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 allows you to take unpaid leave from your job for special family situations while protecting you job and health benefits. FMLA allows eligible employees to take up to 12 work weeks of unpaid leave in a 12-month period for the following reasons:

  • Birth, adoption, or foster care placement of a child
  • A serious health condition that prevents the employee from doing the essential functions of his or her job.
  • Caring for a child, spouse or parent with a serious health condition
  • A qualifying exigency arising out of the fact that your spouse; son or daughter; parent is on active duty or call to active duty status in support of a contingency operation as a member of the National Guard or Reserve
  • Your spouse; son or daughter, parent; or next of kin of a covered servicemember with a serious injury or illness.

The FMLA also allows most employees to maintain health insurance coverage while on leave and to return to the same or an equivalent position at the end of the leave.

Employees are eligible to take leave if they have worked:

  • For the employer for at least 12 months
  • At least 1,250 hours in the previous 12 months
  • At a worksite when 50 or more employees are employed by the company within a 75-mile radius of the worksite.

A leave can be taken all at once, intermittently (such as for periodic medical treatments), or if your employer agrees, by working part-time (such as just after a child's birth or while recovering from a serious health condition).

This is a brief overview of the facts on FMLA for your information. If you have any additional questions please contact the Human Resources Department at 248-684-8202.

School Safety

The State of Michigan "School Safety" legislation (2005 PA 129-131 and 138) recently enacted into law, has an impact on your employment with the school district. Employees convicted of any felony or a misdemeanor from the lists below must notify the Human Resources Department of their conviction (even if noted on your employment application).

After January 1, 2006, the new law requires you, as an employee of the district/school to self-report to your employer and the Michigan Department of Education when you have been arraigned/charged with certain identified crimes. (See the listing in Exhibit B). You must do so within three business days of arraignment or you will be guilty of an additional crime. The Human Resources Department can provide the reporting form. This information is confidential and protected with legislative criminal penalties for inappropriate disclosure.

The law now prohibits a school district from employing, in any capacity, a person convicted of a listed offense, (see the listing in Exhibit A). Individuals currently employed by a school district, who are on the sex offenders registry, must be dismissed from employment.

Detailed information regarding this new "School Safety" legislation may be found on Michigan's MDE website External Link.
