1. Purpose

The Human Resource Services assists departments in recruiting and selecting individuals for non-student employment positions (administrative, full-time and part-time staff, temporary and on-call employees) at Brigham Young University–Hawaii (“BYU–Hawaii” or "university") who live the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. All employees are expected to be role models, living a life that combines spiritual values and personal integrity.

2. Policy

Employees should understand that, as a condition of employment, they are required to observe the standards of the university, the CES Honor Code and Employee Dress and Grooming Standards, and to refrain from behavior or expression that seriously and adversely affects The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (“Church”). Members of the Church of Jesus Christ who accept an offer of employment for a nonstudent position on or after January 27, 2022, also accept as a condition of employment that they will hold and be worthy to hold a current temple recommend. Those hired prior to January 27, 2022, are invited to voluntarily accept this same standard as a condition of employment. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ hired in nonstudent positions before January 27, 2022, who have not voluntarily accepted the temple recommend standard continue to accept as a condition of employment the standards of conduct consistent with qualifying for temple privileges. Preference is given to LDS applicants. Employees who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are also expected to maintain the same standards of conduct as outlined in the CES Honor Code and Employee Dress and Grooming Standards as well as the applicable standards in the Ecclesiastical Clearance and University Standards Compliance Verification policy.

Human Resources adheres to the university’s Nondiscrimination and Equal Opportunity policy of hiring qualified active LDS persons for open positions without regard to race, color, gender, national origin, age, veteran status, or disability. Employment-related grievances will be resolved according to the Employee Grievance Policy. Reasonable accommodations will be provided under the guidelines in BYU–Hawaii’s Accommodations of persons with Disability Policy.
