Fall 2010 Semester Building and Library Hours

The new hours for the FALL SEMESTER will begin on MONDAY, AUGUST 16, 2010.
The building and library hours are as follows:

BUILDING HOURS
Sunday 9:45 am - 11:15 pm
Monday-Thursday 7:15 am - 11:15 pm
Friday 7:15 am - 9:45 pm
Saturday 8:15 am - 8:15 pm

LIBRARY HOURS *
Sunday 10:00 am - 11:00 pm
Monday-Thursday 8:00 am - 11:00 pm
Friday 8:00 am - 8:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 am - 8:00 pm



* Library hours will be extended in early December to accommodate students during final exams (times to-be-announced).

 

Elevator Maintenance Scheduled

A full inspection of the building elevators was recently completed and it was recommended that the hoist ropes on all of the passenger elevators be replaced.
(This does not include the internal library elevator.) It should be noted that there are no safety concerns at this time. However, the work needs to be completed now since the RFP process for elevator maintenance is in progress and the current service provider, Otis Elevator, is obligated to do the work under the current contract terms.

One elevator car will be taken out of service each week. It will take approximately 4-5 days to replace the ropes on each elevator. The work is scheduled to begin on
Tuesday, September 28th and be completed on Friday, November 5th.
Work will be done Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am - 3:00 pm each day.

Otis will be accessing each elevator to do the work on the Concourse and 10th floor. There will be barricades placed in the area around the elevator that is being serviced on these two floors. There will be some noise in the elevator vestibules (mostly vacuuming and hammering).

We encourage you to use the stairs whenever possible since there will be increased wait times for elevators until the work is completed.

  • Dependents of F-2 cannot be employed

FALL 2010 CHICAGO-KENT STUDENT HIRING

A new payroll authorization must be completed for all student employees who are newly hired or will continue to work for you after the summer term ends on August 21, 2010.

STUDENT Payroll Authorizations: Should be done on-line.
Use "sub"-Account "6307" for NON-WORK STUDY and"6309" for WORK STUDY ELIGIBLE students.

The payroll authorization should be filled out completely listing August 22, 2010 or thereafter (if the official hire date is later in the term) as the "Effective Date" of employment and must be submitted on or before work begins.

It should be noted that for new hires, pursuant to federal law and IIT Policy, the Payroll Authorization and other tax, I-9 and Direct Deposit Authorization Forms must be submitted to the Office of Administration and Finance for processing before anyone begins working for you. There have been a few recent cases in which the required paperwork was submitted after the student/PT Temp began working. This puts the institution at risk with the federal government and could result in the possible termination of federal financial aid. Therefore, please be sure to adhere to this critical policy.

The student pay rate will remain at $10.00 per hour.

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT END DATES

Use 12/31/2010 for ALL International Students, if a student is a December 2010 graduate and/or if you are unsure whether to hire him/her through the end of the school year. (A new Payroll Authorization must be done each term for international students.)

Use 5/31/2011 if you want to hire students for the entire school year.

FEDERAL WORK STUDY (FWS)

Community Service FWS
FWS funding for community service positions will be available during the Fall 2010 and Spring 2011 semesters. IIT approved Community Service positions are funded 100% by the federal government and are NOT available for hiring of faculty research assistants or general departmental employment.

General FWS
Faculty research assistants and general departmental employment for FWS eligible students can be hired at 50% FWS funding and 50% faculty/departmental funding during the Fall and Spring semesters only. The reason that the general work study split is different than last year (75% FWS/25% dept) is because FWS support from the federal government was significantly less than previous year levels.

The 2011 FWS FOAP is 341025 207A 6309 2451.


Student Online Time Entry

Time entry is conducted through IIT's online time entry for all students and staff. Instructions for Web Time Entry can be found at: http://www.kentlaw.edu/students/student-timesheet-instructions.pdf.
Please print out this "Timekeeping Manual" for student workers so that you have it as a reference for each pay period you will need to enter time worked on-line.

If you have any problems accessing the myIIT portal, please contact IIT OTS Support Desk at 73375.
