Supervisor Responsibilities

Deans, Administrators and Faculty employing students are responsible for their respective student workers.

Students should not be permitted to begin employment unless they provide a copy of their completed employment application and first timesheet.

Students cannot be easily reassigned; therefore, the Departments should hire only those who are best qualified for the positions.

Students must always be under the supervision of a Full-time or Part-Time employee. Supervision includes providing meaningful work situations, informing students of their actual tasks, directly teaching them how to perform them satisfactorily, and keeping accurate student records of the quality of the work performed.

The following information must be maintained for all student employees by their Supervisors/Department:

  • Name
  • Address (home and campus)
  • Telephone (home and campus)
  • Copy of Hiring Addendum consisted of Class and Work Schedule

When students show a lack of regard for assignment, frequent absences, or prove unsatisfactory for other reasons, the supervisor should counsel the students and caution them that further occurrences may result in termination of employment.

Any action taken to terminate a student’s employment should be immediately reported to the Student Employment Office.

Upon the termination of a work assignment, a student evaluation form must be completed and sent to the Student Employment Office for each that is being terminated. Each student should be informed of the decision and reasons for termination by their immediate supervisor.

Supervisors are responsible for ensuring that students are not working while they are required to be in class.
