Employment Concerns


The University is committed to providing an environment that is conducive to hiring and retaining productive student workers. However, student employees are “employees at will” which provides that in the absence of a contract to the contrary, neither an employer nor an employee is required to give notice or advance notice of termination or resignation. Additionally, neither an employer nor an employee is required to give a reason for the separation from employment.

Student employees should resolve employment issues with their supervisor with a discussion regarding any concerns or problems. If there are concerns after this discussion, these issues should be directed to the supervisor's supervisor. Student Employment Services or the Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct Services may be contacted for the following purposes:

Student Employment Services can assist with ideas on how to talk to supervisors. They can also provide information on open positions elsewhere on campus and in the community.

The Office of Conflict Resolution and Student Conduct Services considers all sides of a question in an objective and impartial manner then determines how best to help bring about a non-adversarial solution. Where appropriate, they can facilitate communication between parties who find themselves in a dispute.Complaints of a discriminatory nature (e.g. race, age, color, religion, national origin, sex, veteran status or disability) and complaints of sexual harassment should be directed to the Office of Equal Opportunity.

Mandatory Reporting

All CSU employees and volunteers, including student employees acting in their employment or volunteer roles, are mandatory reporters of any violations or alleged violations of Title IX.  For additional information on the role and responsibilities of a mandatory reporter, see the University Policy regarding mandatory reporting.
