SSM 305–09: Handling Incidents of Fraud in Student Employment
To ensure that campus employers are aware of the procedure for handling incidents of fraud
Financial Aid and Scholarship Services/Student Employment
All allegations of fraud should be reported immediately to the director of Student Employment.
This includes failure to follow prescribed rules in connection with the online timesheet, where nonexempt (hourly) employees record the number of hours worked each day.
Student Employment will normally refer alleged cases of fraud to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities for investigation and determination of the course of action.
This procedure for handling cases of fraud is mandatory. Failure to report a known or suspected incident of fraud may be viewed as participation in, or facilitation of, that activity.
It is the employer’s responsibility to explain the consequences of fraud to each student employee. The supervisor should do this during the orientation of new employees.
For more information on fraud, see SSM 301–11, “Handling Incidents of Fraud, Misrepresentation, and Misappropriation in Financial Aid.”
For information on reporting misuse of university assets, see the Academic Affairs Policies and Procedures Manual—ACD 123, “Misuse of University Assets.”
