Work the Right Way

Authority to Work

 

Managers or People Leads should inspect, verify, and document the identity and employment authorization of every new associate, including associates on global assignment in a country different from their home country.

Should I report suspected non-authorized workers if they're technically employed by a contractor and not Walmart?

Yes. We require all of our contractors to use only work-authorized employees at our facilities. If you suspect there are unauthorized workers at our work sites, please report it to management, your People Lead or Ethics & Compliance.

What should I do if an associate arrives ready to begin working and they cannot show evidence of work authorization?

Follow your country’s policies regarding employment authorization. This includes verification for new associates as well as visiting associates on an expatriate or transition assignment. For example, under U.S. law an employer must terminate the employment of an employee who is unable to show evidence of work authorization within a certain time period.
