Student Rights and Responsibilities

It is the student’s responsibility to read the Student Employment website, paying special attention to the "important dates" section that provides the semester start/end dates. Students must be enrolled and actively attending classes to qualify for student employment. Students may only hold one student employment job at a time.

If a student is awarded Federal Work Study (FWS), it is that student’s responsibility to keep track of cumulative FWS earnings and to advise the supervisor monthly of the balance. Once the FWS limit for the semester is reached, it is at the discretion of the employer to then transfer the student to their department funding account OR to terminate employment. Gross Earnings are monitored through online iPay statements.

Be advised that students may work a maximum of 20 hours per week determined by their official class schedule. Work is not allowed during scheduled class time even if class has been canceled. Students must keep accurate time sheets and submit them in a timely manner according to the payroll schedule; otherwise the student will be paid late. Infraction(s) regarding time sheet completion and submission may result in termination of employment.

If a student falsifies any time sheets, they will be terminated immediately and have disciplinary actions brought against them by Saint Leo University.

Students must adhere to the established work schedule. If time off is desired, permission must be sought from the hiring supervisor in advance. If a student is unable to make it to work on a scheduled work day, the hiring supervisor must be notified as far in advance as possible.

Students must adhere to all rules and policies established by the employer, including dress code.

Students have an obligation to perform job duties satisfactorily. Employers will evaluate job performance, attendance, work ethics, behavior, and attitude, which can be used as reference for future employers even after graduation from Saint Leo University.

The employer has the right to terminate a student from the job if he/she determines that any of the above expectations are unsatisfactory.

Students are required to give notice to the employer before quitting.
