What If I Feel I Have Been Discriminated In The Workplace? Cleveland State University is committed to the principle of equal opportunity in employment and education. No person at the university will be denied opportunity for employment or education or be subject to discrimination in any project, program, or activity because of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, handicap or disability, disabled veteran, Vietnam era veteran or other protected veteran status.

Sexual harassment is morally and ethically reprehensible and, in most cases, it is a misuse of power. Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature or relating to a person’s gender may be considered sexual harassment, when submission to such conduct (explicitly or implicitly) becomes a term or condition of an individual’s employment or academic performance or when such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with a person’s work or academic performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive working or educational environment.

When the supervisor terminates the job: Ask for input to improve performance in the future. Thank the supervisor for the opportunity.
About Reporting Time And Getting Paid
Reporting Time Worked A paper record of the time worked should be maintained until myTime is activated, generally 24 hours after the job is entered into the HRIS system. Jobs are identified by their title. If you have more than one job, be sure you can clearly identify each specific job by its title. Student workers are paid only for time worked. Holidays, snow days, sick days, and breaks are not compensated. Students must clock out for all breaks. Student workers must be offered at least a half-hour unpaid meal break after 6 hours of work. This should be adjusted, if no meal break is taken. At the end of the bi-weekly pay period (every-other Friday), your supervisor must approve the hours worked and submit the approved time to the Payroll Office.
