Student employment policy changes retracted
Recently announced changes to student employment policy, which would have resulted in a significant reduction in maximum work hours, have been retracted by university leadership.
According to an email from Associate Vice President for Student Affairs Katherine W. Morris, “this means that Student Employment policies pertaining to maximum work hours will not change.”
The previous student employment policy will be restored, allowing a maximum of 20, 30 or 40 work hours, depending on GPA, enrollment, term and other factors.
“As of 7/3/13, the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act was tabled for one year at minimum,” said Morris. “University leadership decided that no action would be taken relative to the initiative until federal regulations were finalized.”
A brief announcement has been posted to the Career Services website, which supervisors and student employees are urged to check for further updates, Morris said.
