Student Employee Information
Students working a four hour shift get a 15-minute break (not to be shown on timesheets). A break of either 30 or 60 minutes should be taken if working more than five hours.
This must be shown on the student's timesheet, which is submitted online through Workforce. Since this is a "work-study" program, please bring schoolwork with you. If you are not busy, it is acceptable for you to work on your school assignments. Please note that not all departments have down time, so it is not a guarantee that you will be able to work on homework. This is just during any slow time and some departments never have any slow times.
Remember if you are working both as a student worker and work study or just making up hours on the work-study program, you cannot work more than 20 hours a week.
Although there is no mandated dress code, you are encouraged to use care in what you wear. Please no cropped tops, torn jeans, short shorts, etc.
Also, if a student is scheduled to work more than five hours at a time, they MUST take a lunch break of either 30 or 60 minutes. This must be shown on their time sheets. Remember a work-study cannot work more than 20 hours a week when making up time.
Workforce Time Entry
Don't let it be your fault that a student is not paid on time. As a supervisor, it is your responsibility to see that the student's timesheet is approved in Workforce by the designated time issued by Payroll. Since this is a "work-study" program, please ask your students to bring schoolwork with them. If they are not busy, it is acceptable for them to work on their school assignments.
