Outside Employment Disclosure

MPP and Executive Employees are now required to report outside employment to the CSU. Regardless of whether they have outside employment, they are required to complete an Outside Employment Disclosure and Acknowledgement form and return it to Human Resources. Please contact hr@sonoma.edu with any questions you may have.

Criminal History Procedure Change

California law now prohibits employers from asking applicants about criminal convictions until it has been determined that the applicant has met the minimum qualifications of the job. Our employment application has been updated to reflect this change and must be used for all staff and student appointments. In addition, all new hires will be required to complete a Supplemental Employment Application Questionnaire disclosing their criminal history. In the case of recruitments, hiring managers must send names of all interview candidates to their Recruiter prior to scheduling interviews so that the Supplemental Questionnaire process may be coordinated. Please contact hr@sonoma.edu with any questions you may have.
