§ 35.197  VERIFICATION OF EMPLOYMENT REQUIREMENTS.
   (A)   Certain positions within the village require particular degrees, licenses, certifications or other designations as a condition of employment or as a condition of continued employment. The Human Resources Coordinator is responsible for verifying that all employees whose positions require particular degrees, licenses, certifications or other designations have satisfied those requirements. Copies of the appropriate documents verifying the employee’s degree(s) or licensure(s) shall be retained in the employee’s personnel file. Employees who have continuing educational obligations connected with any professional license or designation required for their village position must notify the village of such obligations and provide proof of compliance. Copies of documents demonstrating compliance will be retained in the employee’s personnel file.
   (B)   If a candidate who has not yet obtained the necessary credentials is being considered for a position, the supervisor recommending the hiring should submit a written explanation to the Village Manager and the Human Resource Coordinator detailing the request to hire that individual.  Generally, in the event the village decides to hire an individual who is not currently in compliance with the village’s credential requirements that individual will be given 60 days to obtain compliance. Upon the sixty-first day, the Human Resource Coordinator will provide verification to the Village Manager that the individual is in compliance or will notify the Village Manager if additional time is necessary to obtain compliance.
   (C)   Any instance of non-compliance or an employee not having the appropriate employment-related credentials shall be brought to the attention of the Village Manager.
