Other Important Information: Temp/Casual employees must complete a University employment application and send original to Human Resources.University employment application It is against the law to have students work without paying them in a timely manner. Terminate a position as soon as you know the employee will not be working.

It is recommended that supervisors request class schedules from their student workers prior to preparing work schedules so they could exclude scheduled class time and coordinate with students’ other jobs. DPT Students may work a maximum of 30 hrs. per week (40 hrs. when classes are not in session). Federal Work Study (FWS) Students may work a maximum of 20 hrs. total per week.

EPAF TIPS When doing a change or extending a job in the middle of a pay period, have your student employee restart timesheet to see new changes. Set up your Proxy or Proxies in case you go on vacation or you are not available. Go to “EPAF Main Menu”, under “EPAF Proxy Records”, select Approval Level, select name and click “Add” box and “Save”. When starting a new EPAF, if employee did not have an active job for one month, use “Re-hire from term status” Category. If the student has another job on campus, use “Add a job or extend job”. For GA’s extra jobs (not their Grad Assistantship job) always use “Add a job or extend job”. Do not start an EPAF if this is a new employee that has never worked at the University before and they have not completed an I9 and background check.
EPAF TIPS When hiring for one day, you have to put at least two days on the EPAF. If EPAF is late, put on the “Comments” the reason it is late. If you are terminating a student or T/C job, use “STK Job Termination, 1JBTRM” EPAF. Make certain you submit the Term EPAF after requesting the end date to be taken off. When starting a new EPAF, on the position number, please use suffix “00” first, instead of “01”. For example: When extending a job, use the very next day as the start date. (Do not overlap) For example: job ends on 10/25/2014, you would do a new EPAF with start date of 10/26/2014. University of the Pacific ~ New Staff Orientation 2010
