Student employment during spring semester
Posted on: Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 4:56 PM
We understand that campus employment for many of our students is critical to their well-being. For this reason, the College leadership is committed to keeping our students employed and paid through the end of the spring semester to ease the disruption and hardship that leaving campus and moving to remote instruction has created for them both emotionally and financially. This campus decision applies to all student temporary employees, work study students, and TA/GAs.
The NYS Governor’s Office of Employee Relations has issued guidance during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak to enable campuses to support our hourly student employees, including TAs and GAs, in this way, and the federal government will continue to pay work-study students. This guidance is consistent with Chancellor Kristina Johnson’s directive to do no harm to our students during this unprecedented time and is consistent with our campus values about our students’ well-being.
Due to Governor Cuomo’s stay at home order, student temporary employees and work study students will need to complete their work remotely. As we move to distance learning next week, the campus will continue to assess ongoing needs for student employment to help ensure the academic success of our students this semester.
Employees of Sodexo or the Campus Bookstore need to work with those areas to understand work schedules and expectations.
