    as a probationary period. There is a 20 hour work
    week restriction for student employees.

Employee Relations Absences
  • Phone your supervisor if you will be absent or
    late for work. If possible, tell your supervisor
    in advance if you know that you will be absent or
    late. Failure to report to work during the agreed
    upon schedule or a demonstration of consistent
    absences or tardiness may be grounds for

Employee Relations Appropriate Dress
  • Appropriate Dress Although HCC has no specific
    dress code, student employees are expected to
    dress appropriately for their positions. Casual
    attire may be allowable, but it is best to check
    with the specific department for which you work
    for appropriate dress for that department. All
    student employees are visible to students,
    alumni, faculty, staff, and members of the
    community. Appropriate dress is expected from all
    student employees.

Employee Relations Breaks
  • Breaks If you work in excess of (4) four or more
    hours, you must take a minimum 30-minute
    "off-the-clock" lunch break. At the discretion of
    your supervisor, a (10) ten minutes break can be
    allowed for each (4) hours of continuous work.
    Breaks should not be taken in the work area. The
    times that breaks are to be taken must be
    approved by the supervisor. Smoking is not
    allowed inside HCC buildings.

Employee Relations
  • Confidentiality of Records HCC records and
    information must be treated confidentially and
    professionally as stated in the Federal Rights
    and Privacy Act of 1974. They are to be discussed
    only with individuals authorized to have access
    to institutional records. Any violation
    concerning the confidentiality of records
    constitutes grounds for termination. Any student
    employee who provides confidential information
    obtained from HCC to any unauthorized
    individuals outside their designated department
    will be disciplined and/or terminated immediately.

Employee Relations Dismissal
  • You can be discharged for any reason of
    misconduct or unsatisfactory work performance.
    The following are some examples of reasons for
  • Working under the influence of alcohol,
    stimulants, or other drugs.
  • Missing work or unexcused absences without
    notifying your supervisor.
  • Reporting more hours on your time card than you
    actually worked.

    to the Department Supervisor for approval and
    then delivered to the Business Office in Building

    how to track and submit your work hours. Time
    sheets are due on the circled date on the HCC
    2005/2006 Student Payroll Calendar. Failure to
    turn in your time sheet could result in a missing
    paycheck and disciplinary action.
  • Both student and supervisor must sign timesheet.

Employee Relations Pay Checks
  • Pay ChecksPaychecks are disbursed bi-monthly on
    the underlined dates on the Student Payroll
    calendar. Students are paid for actual hours
    worked - not for estimated hours. The first pay
    check takes approximately 4 to 8 weeks to be
    processed. Please check with your supervisor.
  • Student direct deposit of student pay is
    available through the HCC Business Office.

Employee Relations Performance Evaluations
  • Performance Evaluations Formal student employee
    evaluations are to be completed at least once
    each semester by your supervisor. In addition to
    the formal evaluation process, supervisors are
    expected to provide routine, informal feedback to
    all student employees. The purpose of the written
    evaluation is to provide formal assessment and
    documentation of performance as well as an
    opportunity for personal and institutional

Employee Relations Performance Evaluations

    areas attendance, dependability, quality of

    telephone for personal calls without their
    supervisors permission and only when absolutely
    necessary. Student employees may not use other
    office equipment, such as computers (and
    associated printers, scanners, etc.),
    photocopying machines, word processors, or
    typewriters, for personal business or class work.

Employee Relations Professional Conduct
  • Student employees provide an invaluable
    contribution to the work performed at HCC.
    However, students are expected to work to their
    full potential while "on the clock." The
    following general guidelines apply
  • You are not to do homework or engage in similar
    non-work related activities while on the job
    unless expressly permitted to do so by your

Employee Relations Professional Conduct
  • Discourage friends and family from visiting or
    telephoning you at work, except in emergencies.
  • If you complete an assigned task and have nothing
    else to do, it is your responsibility to ask your
    supervisor what additional tasks he/she might
    have for you to do. If there is no additional
    work, then the supervisor may make your services
    available to other HCC faculty or staff who need

Employee Relations Professional Conduct

    supervisors absence. This supervisor-designate
    might be your supervisors immediate supervisor,
    a co-worker or someone else working on the same
    or a similar project

Employee Relations Questions
  • Questions Dont be afraid to ask questions of
    your supervisor or to ask him/her for help. The
    only "dumb" question is one that isnt asked!
    Its better to admit you dont know but are
    willing to learn than to give someone incorrect
  • How Do I Handle Job Problems? (e.g., work
    schedule, job expectations, not enough hours,
    conflicts with supervisor) discuss them with your

    nice to have students who intend to resign their
    position, to submit a letter of notice of
    resignation two weeks or more prior to leaving.

  • Regardless of how minor you may think the injury
    is, an accident its better to admit you dont
    know but are willing to learn than to give
    someone incorrect information.
  • Maintain a safe work environment

Employee Relations Working Your FWS Award
  • Work-Study is a federally-funded program and is
    awarded to eligible students through the
    Financial Aid Office at Honolulu Community
    College. Federal Work Study (FWS) enables you to
    earn that portion of your expenses not covered by
    grants and loans. If you have been awarded FWS
    funds, you must work with an eligible FWS
    employer to earn them.
  • You should weigh the advantages of locating a job
    that matches your special skills, interest,
    and/or academic major. The Student Employment
    office will assist you in finding a Work Study
    job on the UH SECE online system. There is no
    guarantee that you will be able to find a FWS
    placement. If you are not hired by a FWS
    authorized employer you will not receive any
    portion of your FWS award for that semester.

Employee Relations Working Your FWS Award
  • Continued  
  • You must be enrolled at least half-time (6
    credits) during the semesters (fall/spring) while
    you are employed. You may earn your FWS funds up
    to the awarded amount as indicated on your award
    offer. If you do not earn all of the awarded
    amount for the semester, your unused portion will
    not be carried over into the next semester. If
    you are already working in a non-work-study
    position, you may wish to talk with your employer
    to convert your position to a FWS position or
    decline your FWS award.

Employee Relations Working Your FWS Award
  • Continued  
  • Community Service Opportunities
  • Students who are eligible for employment in the
    FWS Program have an opportunity to serve the
    local community through paid work experiences.
    Openings are listed on the SECE system under FWS.
    The America Reads program (literacy for K-5
    children, America Counts (tutoring in math for
    children 6th-9th) Jumpstart (literacy for Pre-K
    children) and MOSAIC (tutoring and mentoring for
    youth grades 7th-12th). HCC presently has
    America Reads positions available in elementary
    schools near the campus.

Customer Service
  • Gain the knowledge and skills to help you
    recognize and practice appropriate behaviors for
    providing effective service. Develop a positive
    service attitude that reflects your commitment to
    Honolulu Community Colleges core values
  • Respect (for one another)
  • Quality Excellence (cooperation, pride in a job
    well done
  • Student Centered ( intellectual and spiritual
  • Community (creative imaginings)

Sexual Harassment
  • Sexual harassment of either employees or students
    is a violation of federal and state laws. It is
    the policy of the University of Hawaii system
    that no member of the UH system community may
    sexually harass another. In accordance with its
    policy of complying with non-discrimination laws,
    the UH system will regard freedom from sexual
    harassment as an individual employee and student
    right which will be safeguarded as a matter of
    policy. Any employee or student will be subject
    to disciplinary action for violation of this

Sexual Harassment
  • Consenting relationships may constitute sexual
    harassment under this policy. When a
    professional power differential exists between
    member of the UH System and a romantic or sexual
    relationship develops, there is a potential for
    abuse of that power, even in relationships of
    apparent mutual consent. Faculty and staff
    members are strongly advised not to engage in
    such relationships. Further, the UH System
    prohibits the abuse of power in romantic or
    sexual relationships.

Sexual Harassment
  • Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual
    favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a
    sexual nature constitute sexual harassment when
  • Submission to such conduct is made either
    explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of
    an individuals employment or education
  • Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an
    individual is used as the basis for academic or
    employment decisions affecting the individual or
  • Such conduct has the purpose or effect of
    interfering with an individuals academic or work
    performance or creating an intimidating, hostile
    or offensive employment, educational or living

    required to identify and communicate to students,
    a student-signed and dated written consent is
    required before a school may disclose educational
