Students who commit such infractions of the employment policy are subject to judicial action at a college level and criminal prosecution by the U.S. Department of Education. Examples: Student fails to work their shift, but records the hours anyway. Student records hours on timesheet and does not work their entire shift listed on timesheet. Student allows another student to work in their place, but still counts those hours on their own timesheet.

This also goes in the “Time Period” section on your Timesheet. The “Pay Date” is the day you can pick your paycheck up in the Business Office.
