Disciplinary Procedures and Grounds for Dismissal

Disciplinary Procedures

  1. The first incident may be acknowledged in person, by email or by phone. The desired behavior will be discussed.

  2. The second incident may be conveyed either in person or by e-mail, however both student and supervisor must sign acknowledgement and improvement plan.  (If student fails to acknowledge email or voice mail, then a deadline for a response is given.  If response is not received by agreed upon deadline, student worker will be dismissed.)

  3. The third incident will result in dismissal.

Grounds for Suspension and Dismissal

  • Although suspension related to academic performance is unlikely to affect your employment status at the library, you may be terminated if you are suspended for honor code violations or criminal matters.
  • Federal work study program students are automatically removed from the payroll when suspended.
  • Falsifying your hours in the time system is grounds for immediate dismissal.  They need to be as accurate as possible.  If you log your hours every day you work when you come in to work, this will not be a problem.
  • Breaching confidentiality of information is grounds for immediate dismissal.
  • Excess tardiness and repeated absences may result in dismissal.
  • Failure to adhere to customer service standards may result in dismissal.
  • Please see student supervisor in your department for more information.
