Managing Students

Please review this website - this goes over all the information regarding students.  A couple of key points from rules/regulations of managing student staff:
  • Work not to exceed 20 hours per week from all jobs worked (so if they have 3 jobs on campus, all hours cannot exceed 20 hours)
  • The Office of Student Employment allows 3 days from the student's Job Effective Date to complete the I-9 process (or the Payroll cut-off, whichever comes sooner) before voiding it.
  • Students may not work during their scheduled class time.
  • Student jobs are for a maximum of one academic year and automatically terminate at the end of that year. If a student is to be rehired for a subsequent period, the student must be rehired through Student Jobs.
You can find even more resources in the For Employers section of the Student Jobs website.
