Lake Michigan College (the “College”) requires employees to wear an identification (“ID”) badge at all times while working. The badge must be worn with name and photo clearly visible. Badges must contain the following information:

  • Employee photo.
  • Employee name. Full name or first name and first initial of last name are acceptable. Nicknames are not permitted unless it is the name by which the employee is commonly called at work.
  • Department name. Part-time faculty badges should read “Faculty” with the program/discipline name following (unless the employee is required to have more specific nomenclature due to third-party clinical requirements such as nursing or dental assisting).

Employee badges should not contain titles. 

Employees on College premises not wearing an ID badge may be questioned by a security officer or other employee.

The ID badge is the property of the College. Badges must be turned in upon termination of employment.


Employee ID badges will be issued by Human Resources (“HR”) during new employee orientation or within the first 30 days of employment. 

If a badge is lost or destroyed, a replacement must be obtained from HR after paying a $10 replacement fee to the Business Office cashier. Lost or stolen badges should be reported immediately to Human Resources. There is no replacement cost for old or worn-out badges.
