Student employees must report to work at the time agreed upon with their supervisor. If you are going to be late, call your supervisor or someone else in the department as soon as possible to notify them of when you will arrive. Lateness and absences may result in the initiation of the three-step termination process.
If you are unable to attend work on any given day, give your supervisor as much notice as possible. It may be helpful to program your supervisor's phone number into your cell phone. In many cases, your supervisor will have to find a replacement for you.
If your class schedule changes after your work hours are scheduled, or if you have exams, you should notify your supervisor as soon as possible so that your work hours can be rescheduled. Student employees and supervisors should understand the student employee's first priority at NYIT is as a student.
