Despite screening, training, and supervision, there are occasions when a student employee may need to be terminated because of performance, attendance, or conduct problems. Prior to termination, students must be informed that their work is less than satisfactory and that termination will occur unless their performance improves.
Specific deficiencies should be pointed out to the student. A written warning should be issued and an opportunity for improvement given with a specific period of time established. If satisfactory performance does not occur within the designated time frame, the supervisor may then proceed with the termination. It is recommended that supervisors give student two weeks' notice of termination.
The Student Employment Coordinator is available to serve as a liaison or intermediary in termination or near-termination situations. Additionally, students who feel as if they have been wrongfully discharged may appeal their case, in writing, to the Student Employment Coordinator within 7 days of departure from said position.
The Student Employment Coordinator recommends that supervisors follow these guidelines when dealing with disciplinary problems:
At times, situations arise which require more severe and immediate action. Grounds for immediate dismissal include, but are not limited to:
If a student finds it necessary to leave a position, the Student Employment Coordinator encourages at least one week's notice. When ending a position, the student must complete a Resignation Form and have it signed by the employing department. The form must indicate the last day the student worked.
In all cases, the student must obtain, complete and return the Resignation Form before applying for another position.
A student is encouraged to remain in the work study position for the full program period. However, transfer requests can be made at the end of the semester. Since a student is allowed one transfer of job sites during the academic year; it is necessary that the student attempts to select a job assignment that closely fits his/her career goals.
The Student Employment Coordinator is available for assistance in selecting the appropriate assignment. Changes in job assignments may be made only at the end of each semester or under certain circumstances, with a release from the supervisor and approval by the Student Employment Coordinator.
A student requesting a transfer or resignation from a work-study position is required to complete a Resignation Form. No student will be allowed to transfer to another job until this form has been signed by his supervisor releasing him/her from the position.
