Movement Form

The Movement Form is to be used as formal notice of employee transferring positions or unforeseen termination. Once the form is processed, the student's position will be ended and their timesheet will be deactivated. If an employee leaves the University or stops showing up for work & does not acknowledge supervisor outreach, a Movement Form is needed to end their position. Note: if you wish to terminate a student employee due to behavioral or performance issues, you must first file a notice with HR.

If you would like to give permission to another staff/faculty member to view and approve employee timesheets, you'll need to manually do it via PAWS. Watch the short instructional video for help.

Timesheet Instructions 

Student employees submit their time the same way all University staff does. The supervisor is responsible for ensuring that the student knows how and when to submit their time in accordance to University Policy and Federal Law.
