Rights and Responsibilities

Rights and responsibilities should be discussed when a student employee is hired and a statement of acceptance signed. Both the department and the student employee have rights and responsibilities with regard to employment at Central Michigan University. 

The hiring department should:
  • outline student job duties;
  • inform the student employee of pay rate (if a new position, and after confirmation from Student Employment Services);
  • discuss specific policies and procedures that are unique to the department;
  • provide proper supervision for the student employee.  Supervision means the employee has someone in authority to contact in the event of a problem in the workplace.
