Appropriate Use of Student Labor

All students working in the Berea College Labor Program are provided a position description that outlines specific duties and learning opportunities. All positions retain a degree of flexibility to meet changing needs with the department. However, it is inappropriate and against College guidelines and Federal Work Study regulations to utilize student labor for personal / non-College-related gain (e.g., babysitting, errands, housekeeping, home maintenance, or other strictly non-work-related endeavors).  Students can only be paid for work they were contracted to perform through their labor department.
