We believe most situations can be handled within departments between the student and the supervisor. In cases in which a student is uncomfortable talking with the immediate supervisor, alternatives are listed below.
- When department structure allows (i.e., the student works for someone who is not senior staff or department chair), the student should discuss the problem with the person one step above the student's supervisor. A student should go through the department hierarchy before taking the problem outside the department.
- When a student does not have a hierarchy of people to talk with, or when that group of people has been exhausted without a resolution to the problem, the student should contact the Student Employment Office for additional options.
Students, as College employees, are eligible for Workers' Compensation when they are injured on the job. The injured student, or another person acting on that student's behalf, must report the injury immediately (within 24 hours) to the supervisor. Please contact the Office of Human Resources for additional information.
If a student finds it necessary to leave a campus job, we encourage at least one week's notice. Some departments will require more time, as it is necessary to find and train a qualified person before the resigning student leaves the job. Other positions can remain open for short periods of time, and these supervisors may not require any notice whatsoever. It is best to communicate in advance whenever possible.
