Terms and conditions

Student Employment does not screen employers who advertise on the Jobs Board. Students are responsible for taking care of their own personal safety when attending a job or an interview. If attending a private household, take reasonable precautions such as letting someone know where you are going and when you will be back.

While job ads are monitored by Student Employment, we cannot be responsible for the employment terms offered to students. Students must ensure that their pay and conditions meet federal minimum standards – Student Employment can direct you to information on these.
