Employment Policies & Procedures

vineThe first 90 days on the job are considered a probationary period. If the work of a student employee is unsatisfactory during this period, a supervisor may terminate the employee without the customary 2 weeks' notice.

vineAfter a student employee has passed the initial 90-day probationary period, the supervisor will need to provide 2 weeks' written notice when terminating the employee. Incidents leading to termination need to be discussed with the student employee, described in writing, dated and placed in the student's file.
