Nine residence hall and dining services employees were fired
Thursday when Housing and Dining Services’ human resources
department discovered they were using false Social Security
The nine Corbett Hall, Parmlee Hall and Durrell Center employees
were illegal immigrants from Mexico, some of whom worked for CSU
for five years, said Robert Skaggs, supervisor at the Durrell
Center Dining Services.
Then the human resources department informed Residence Hall
Dining services of the employees’ statuses.
“All of a sudden we were notified that a number of individuals
that were working for us did not have the proper paper work,” said
Ronald Pantier, associate director of Residence Hall Dining
Pantier said when employees are hired, a Social Security card
and photo identification are required.
“Up to this point, we’ve taken that as legal identification,” he
Painter added that if they could show the proper paperwork, the
nine employees would be allowed to return to their jobs.
