FAQs: Hiring Managers

Summer 2021

  1. Are student jobs exempt from the staff hiring freeze?
  2. Will students be allowed to work remotely over the summer?
  3. Can I continue to pay my student employee who is not in a position to work on campus or remotely?
  4. Can Notre Dame students work for Notre Dame affiliates (e.g., child care or yard work for Notre Dame faculty, staff, or graduate students)?
Are student jobs exempt from the staff hiring freeze?

The hiring freeze does not apply to student jobs; Executive Officer approval is not required. Preference should be given to Notre Dame students first. Secondary consideration should be given to underutilized Notre Dame employees (i.e., non-exempt employees who may have fewer hours due to limited campus operations); if this option is pursued, a different job type would need to be created. Non-ND students in the community should only be considered if the first two options are exhausted.

Will students be allowed to work remotely over the summer?

Students who are located domestically will be allowed to work remotely, if the department has the funding and an appropriate remote work opportunity.

Can I continue to pay my student employee who is not in a position to work on campus or remotely?

No, if a student is not working, the student should not receive pay.

Can Notre Dame students work for Notre Dame affiliates (e.g., child care or yard work for Notre Dame faculty, staff, or graduate students)?

Yes, barring any new developments.
