Student employees should be made to feel that they can always go to their supervisor with work-related problems. The first step for a student employee with a complaint in most cases ought to be the immediate supervisor. If student employees feel that they cannot discuss a matter with their immediate supervisor, student employees should take their concerns to his/her supervisor.
The Career Center is another resource for student employees with complaints. The Career Center will talk with the student and give him/her University policy information and resources.
In cases where the Career Center believes that discrimination and/or unfair treatment has occurred, the student will be advised to contact the Office of Equity and Diversity for further investigation.
