Work for a House Employing Office

The House is a not a single employing entity, but rather it consists of several hundred individual employing offices. These offices include Members of Congress, Committees, House Officers, and the Inspector General. Responsibilities vary and are determined by the employing entity.

All employing offices within the House are equal opportunity employers, however each individual office or entity determines its own organization structure, work schedules, and compensation structures (including wages and benefits).

Consistent with applicable law, selection and continued employment may be contingent upon an applicant satisfactorily completing a background check (that may include a criminal history records review.) Some employing offices may also test for illegal drug use. Employing offices develop their own policies on how this information is used in the hiring process.
