COVID-19 Workplace Safety Protocols

All Arbor Research employees are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, except in limited circumstances where an employee is legally entitled to an accommodation. New employees will be required to submit proof of vaccination status prior to their first day. An employee who feels they are unable to comply with this policy and needs an accommodation because of a disability or sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance, should submit a written request for accommodation to Human Resources as soon as they are aware of the need for the accommodation.

Work Authorization Support

Arbor Research believes that having and maintaining a diverse workforce results in a dynamic, multidisciplinary group of employees that share a passion for high-quality, evidence-based research and are committed to improving patient lives through the research they conduct. Therefore, Arbor Research encourages, supports, and does not discriminate against foreign workers who require authorization to work in the United States.

As a nonprofit research organization, Arbor Research is exempt from the annual H-1B cap. Consequently, an employee requiring an H-1B visa or a transfer of their H-1B employment, will, if hired, be sponsored by Arbor Research. By law and regulation, all attorney and filing fees necessary to obtain and/or extend the H-1B for the employee (primary beneficiary) are paid by Arbor Research. Any attorney and filing fees for dependents of the employee are the sole responsibility of the employee at all times.

In addition, Arbor Research may support an employment based green card for eligible employees. Eligibility depends on employment tenure, current visa status, and job performance. Responsibility for associated costs and fees will be determined at the onset of the application process.
