It is our goal that all students’ campus employment experiences are positive and rewarding ones that will prepare students for employment after college.
Student employees are expected to treat their campus employment positions as real jobs. When they do not, supervisors should follow the guidelines below.
The steps are designed to assist supervisors in helping students have a meaningful work experience and develop a work ethic by dealing with issues that may affect the student’s job performance.
This does not necessarily mean that after four offenses the student is automatically terminated.
The Student Employment Coordinator is to be informed of any action(s) taken. Supervisors will document any offenses and forward a copy to the Student Employment Office.
- On the first offense, the student is generally given a verbal warning. The student will be told why the particular behavior was unacceptable and the consequences if it continues to occur.
- If the same offense occurs a second time, the student will be given a written warning. Both the supervisor and the student employee should sign the written warning, and the supervisor will send a copy to the Student Employment Office.
- If the behavior does not improve, an appointment may be made for the student employee to meet with the Student Employment Coordinator. At this time the Coordinator and student employee will discuss any issues that need to be addressed to correct to problem.
- If there is no effort on the part of student employee to improve, then the supervisor can choose to terminate the student’s employment from the department. Termination should only occur when all other means of improving the situation fail.
Issues that require action include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Breach of confidentiality
- Falsifying time card information
- Gross negligence resulting in serious injury to property, person or public relations.
- Misuse of supplies and equipment including telephones and computers
- Physical violence or obscene language
