Limited term employment (LTE) and Project residency requirements

Per Wisconsin Statutes 230.26(1m)(a) and 230.27(1m)(a), an applicant for limited term or project employment must be a Wisconsin resident at the time of hire. Wisconsin Statutes 230.03(12) identifies a resident as a person who meets at least one of the following requirements:

  • Has established a residence (defined as the place where the person's habitation is fixed, without any present intent to move and to which, when absent, the person intends to return) in the state not less than 10 days earlier.
  • Has resided in this state for not less than a total of one year out of the immediately preceding 5 years.
  • Is eligible to register to vote in this state.
  • Is the spouse of a person meeting one of the above requirements.

The policy of the State of Wisconsin as an employer is to employ or continue to employ only persons who are legally authorized to work in the United States.
