Identification Card

Welcome to the Identification Card section of the Human Resources Website.

It is the policy of the University to issue all staff with identification cards. University identification cards contain the employee's name, picture and personnel number. Staff identification cards are issued to all permanent and contract employees of the University, who have been issued contracts of employment by the Human Resources Division. Where an employee is employed on a contract basis, the staff identification card shall include an expiry date..

Staff identification cards are the property of the University of Limerick. Lost or stolen cards should be reported to the Human Resources Division. Identification cards must be returned to the University when employment ceases. On commencement of employment a new employee will be issued with a staff identification card. Permanent employees are issued with a Staff ID card which will expire either 5 years from the date the card is issued or on their retirement date, if this occurs in less than 5 years. Contract employees are issued with a Staff ID card which will expire on the expiry date of their current employment contract.
