What I Need to Know

What’s expected of me?

As a student, you have certain responsibilities as a Wentworth employee:

  1. Report to work promptly.
  2. Notify your supervisor if you will be late or unable to work.
  3. Submit a timesheet to your supervisor each week with hours that you’ve worked.
  4. Perform your job responsibilities to the best of your ability.
  5. Take your job seriously. The work experience is valuable.

What Are The Consequences Of Misconduct?

Unsatisfactory Work: Failure to perform satisfactorily on the job will result in an employment review and can lead to dismissal from your position.  If you violate Wentworth regulations, or state or federal laws, you will be subject to disciplinary action as outlined in the Student Handbook. A student who has his/her FWS canceled for failure to perform satisfactorily on the job will be ineligible for FWS employment at any department for the rest of the academic year.

Incorrect reporting of hours: Individuals found guilty of altering timesheets will be removed immediately from the FWS position and face suspension from the Institute. In addition, altering timesheets is considered a federal offense. If you purposely give false or misleading information, you may be fined $10,000 and/or face imprisonment. 

Appealing a job dismissal: If dismissed from a job, you have the right to appeal. A written statement must be made to your employer within five business days of the dismissal. The employer must respond within five business days of the appeal.
