North American University Human Resources is the custodian of employment files and records. Personnel Files are held with extreme privacy; without written authorization, an employee’s personnel file or reference will not be released. Employees must submit form 6200-20 or 6200-21 in order to authorize the release of their employment record to respond to reference requests made by parties outside of the University. With a signed release form, performance and other relevant information may be released by HR or others who have been specifically designated.
Employees wishing to designate a supervisor to release a reference on their behalf must submit an original Reference Release Form to Human Resources with a copy to the designated individual.
