What are acceptable documents to bring in? View the list of acceptable documents listed by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. No scans, photos, or copies of documents will be accepted. They must be original and unexpired documentation.
When can the student start working?Students may not begin work until they have completed all of the required paperwork, their background check has returned a result of Meets University Standards, and they have presented original, unexpired photo identification and proof of eligibility to work in the U.S. in person to the O'Neill School's Human Resources staff. This entire process can take up to two weeks, so please do not ask students to begin work the day that you hire them.
I forgot to clock out, how do I fix my time sheet? If a student accidentally stays clocked in for too long or may need help with any other discrepancies with their time sheet, they should contact email@example.com
How many hours can I work? Students may work a maximum of 29 hours per week (58 hours per pay period). International Students may work a maximum of 20 hours per week (40 hours per pay period). It is very important that students stay within these limits for us to be in accordance with federal law.
