As a Federally Qualified Health Center, Neighborhood must comply with the governor's mandate requiring hospital and nursing home workers to get the COVID-19 vaccine. You will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination if an offer of employment is made. The vaccine mandate applies to all personnel employed or affiliated with a covered entity, including volunteers and students. Only a limited medical exemption remains for qualifying individuals.
Neighborhood Health Center is an equal opportunity employer that is committed to the practice of equity and inclusion. All employment decisions will be made without regard to an individual's race, color, religion, creed, national origin, ancestry, age (40 or older) sex (including pregnancy, gender identity and sexual orientation) marital status, non-job related disability, genetic information or service in the Armed Forces. This policy will be applied with regard to recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion transfer, demotion, reduction in force, termination, compensations, benefits, selection for training and general treatment during employment.
Primary care medical, dental and behavioral health clinicians can receive up to $50,000 for two years of full-time service (or up to $25,000 for part-time service) to repay their health profession student loans. For more information, please visit the NHSC website here.
The NHSC Scholarship program is available to students committed to primary care and accepted to (or enrolled) in a U.S. school training physicians (MD or DO), dentists, nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives and physician assistants. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) also offers the Nurse Corps Scholarship Program.
E-Verify® is an internet-based employment eligibility system operated by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Social Security Administration (SSA). This program allows employers to quickly verify the eligibility of their newly hired employees to work legally in the United States.
E-Verify® is a voluntary system. However, employers with federal contracts or subcontracts that contain the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) E-Verify clause are required to enroll in E-Verify as a condition of federal contracting.
How It Works and What It Means to Newly-Hired Employees
Employees are required to complete the Form I-9, and employees must provide employers with documentation establishing both identity and eligibility to work in the United States. Federal law requires that all employers verify the identity and employment eligibility of all new employees (including U.S. citizens) within three days of hire.
Through E-Verify®, employers send information about you, gathered from your Form I-9, to SSA and DHS to confirm that you are authorized to work in the United States and that your name, Social Security number, date of birth, citizenship status, and any other non-citizen information you choose to provide to your employer match government records. If your employer uses E-Verify®, you as an employee have certain rights and responsibilities.
E-Verify® must be used for new hires only. It cannot be used to verify the employment eligibility of current employees.
E-Verify® must be used for all new hires regardless of national origin or citizenship status. It may not be used selectively.
E-Verify® must be used only after hire and after completion of the Form I-9. Employers may not pre-screen applicants through E-Verify.
If an employee's Form I-9 information cannot be matched with the SSA and DHS databases, the employer must provide the employee with information regarding challenging the information mismatch, including a written notice from E-Verify®.
If an employee decides to challenge the information mismatch, the employer must provide a referral letter issued by E-Verify® that contains specific instructions and contact information.
Employers may not take any adverse action against an employee because they contest the information mismatch until the employee has had eight (8) federal government work days to contact the appropriate federal agency to resolve the conflict. This includes firing, suspending, withholding pay or training, or otherwise infringing upon his/her employment.
