Professional Expectations

Many student hourly employees work in public facing offices or other administrative units in which professional standards of conduct apply. Supervisors should clarify any professional standards for all employees, such as an office dress code. Other expectations that supervisors and employees might clarify include email and phone manners, procedures for calling in sick, or the proper use and maintenance of shared areas of the office. It is the responsibility of supervisors to communicate expectations clearly in advance. When employees are in doubt about expectations, they are strongly encouraged to ask their supervisor.
