Casual/Temporary Employees

ID Cards for Casual/Temporary employees are issued by request only.  If an ID Card is required, the hiring department must complete a Casual/Temporary ID Request Form.  The form should be completed by the department supervisor or business manager and e-mailed or faxed to the appropriate ID Center prior to sending the employee to the ID Center.  There is a six-month maximum duration for all Casual/Temporary ID Cards.

Please be sure the employee has successfully completed a background check before submitting an ID Card request – no Casual/Temporary ID Card requests will be processed until the background check requirement has been met.  For questions regarding the background check policy and procedures, please contact preemploymentscreening@yale.edu

Once the form has been processed by the ID Center, the requestor will be notified by e-mail that the employee may come to the ID Center to obtain their ID Card. 

The casual/temporary employee will be required to present one of the following forms of government-issued photo identification in order to obtain their ID Card:

  • Passport (USA or International)
  • Driver’s License (USA only)
  • State Issued (Non-driver) ID
  • US Military ID
  • INS ID (Green Card)

The Casual/Temporary ID Request Form must also be completed and the above procedures followed for renewals of a Casual/Temporary ID Card.  The employee must turn in their expired Casual/Temporary ID card when they obtain the updated card.
