Supervisor Training for Payroll Information & the Web Time Sheet System
Policy 1302 defines student employment and who is eligible to be considered a student employee The roles and responsibilities of all departments, staff and students involved in the process are clearly defined within the policy Each area on campus has a designated hiring manager that has been through mandatory training and these individuals are the only people authorized to hire student employees What the Policy Says
Students cannot work more than 20 hours per week during academic periods and no more than 40 hours per week during break periods The allowable work hours per week for students during academic and break periods cannot be exceeded even if the student holds multiple jobs on campus – it is your responsibility as a supervisor to work with the other departments to be sure the student is in compliance Violations of the hours worked per week could lead to your department losing their ability to hire student employees Key Points from the Policy
Affordable Care Act began in calendar year 2014 and requires that health insurance coverage be given to all employees who work on average 30 or more hours per week The Commonwealth has adopted a provision in the 2013 Appropriation Act that limits wage employees to working no more than 29 hours per week on average over the course of 12 months This means no more than 1500 hours can be worked during the measurement period by student workers or regular hourly employees. NO EXCEPTIONS The ACA measurement period for the Commonwealth will be May 1 – April 30 (This is for student and hourly workers) Compliance with the allowable work hours per week in Policy 1302 allows student employment to meet the Commonwealth criteria Effect of Affordable Care Act
We have developed reports that will utilize the web timesheet system to help monitor compliance with allowable work hours per academic and break periods for student employees These reports also assist in monitoring hourly compliance with the 1500 hour rule Department heads will be notified if an area under their supervision violates the allowable work hour rules for student employees Areas that violate the policy could lose their right to employ student workers Monitoring Compliance
Student wages are set by Human Resources in Policy 1303 – exceptions to pay rates outside of this policy must have prior approval of the Director of Human Resources The FICA Safe Harbor for student workers applies only when they are enrolled in classes for at least half time – student employees not enrolled in summer courses but continuing education in the Fall will be subject to FICA taxes – non-compliance with the work hours in Policy 1302 can jeopardize this Safe Harbor Other Notable Items
