Workers’ Compensation and Liability
As stipulated in the Work Study Agreement (contract), a FWS student’s off-campus employer is the employer of record and responsible for filing any workers’ compensation and liability claims.
Supervisors and students will be added to CWSP email lists during their participation with CWSP. These e-lists are used to communicate important payroll and employment information, as well as awards and funding that may be of interest to employers or students.
Employer Sponsored Net ID notifications
If an employer receives a notification from email@example.com that says my Cornell sponsored Net ID will expire soon, forward this message to CWSP immediately so they can renew your Net ID so you can maintain your access to approve timecards in WorkDay. You need to be an active/eligible supervisor to maintain your Net ID. Net IDs can only be renewed for a year period.
Student Employee Terminations
A student may choose to resign from their FWS position. We request that student’s provide adequate notice (2 weeks) and must notify the CWSP of intentions. Ensure student’s time is submitted in WorkDay by the last day of work.
Off-campus employers/supervisors have the right to dismiss a student for unsatisfactory job performance. This may include, but is not limited to:
- Repeated failure to comply with the agreed work schedule;
- Unwillingness to accomplish assigned tasks;
- Insubordination or lack of cooperation which results in disturbing the workers or work progress;
- Illicit behavior, such as falsifying timecards, stealing, or misuse of computers, phones, or other equipment, etc.
A student may also be dismissed due to changes in the employer’s available funding and/or because you have run out of federal work study eligibility. The employer will follow their agency policies in regards to terminations.
Employers in the Community Work-Study Program are required to complete an evaluation form for each student they employ. Student employees are also required to complete an evaluation of their work-study job, expectations, and experiences. Both are confidential.
Evaluation forms are emailed to the supervisor of record at the end of each employment term (academic year and/or summer) or upon end of employment.
CWSP uses these forms to assess how its students are assisting community agencies and the opportunities being offered to students, as well as to assess and monitor off-campus positions.
