The hiring process for student employees has changed. The Office of Human Resources (OHR) Student Employment Program is no longer verifying student status and work study fund availability. Yet, this is still something that needs to be done for compliance and budgetary reasons.
Neither Extension HR nor the hiring supervisors have automated access to this information--the only way to find out is to ask the student. Getting this info will require some added steps for the student employee and different steps for the hiring supervisor (or designee) and for Extension HR.
As before, supervisors will have a conversation with the student about using the student's work study financial aid dollars. The difference is that supervisors will now need to alert students that we will need screenshots of their financial aid status (if work study dollars are being used) and of their class schedule to verify student status. These screenshots replace the information that was previously provided on the OHR Student Employment quick hire form.
Extension HR asks that these screenshots be submitted along with the other payroll paper documents that are required to be able to start working. The supervisor is still responsible for ensuring all paperwork is in to Extension HR before the first day of employment.
