SSM 304–11: Student Employee Termination
To provide information for terminating the employment of student employees
Student Financial Assistance Office/Student Employment
Student employment is considered temporary and can be terminated at anytime without cause or advance notice.
However, the university recognizes that student employment has an educational purpose and is an opportunity for the student to develop work habits and skills. Therefore it is recommended that a department that has a student employee with performance deficiencies counsel the student, in an attempt to change the behavior or performance. The counseling can include a verbal and/or written warning. Still, lack of counseling does not preclude the department from terminating the student employment at any time. The student must be provided written notification of the termination and their grievance rights. The student may appeal the termination within two working days to the department head, who will render a final written decision within seven days after receipt of the appeal. See SSM 304–12, “Student Employee Grievances.”
