Note

  • All positions are hourly positions. There are no contract positions.
  • The minimum wage is $10.40 per hour. 
  • Lifeguards will be paid based on their certification. 
  • A Hartwick student working in a job equivalent to or with more responsibility than their academic year job shall be paid at a rate no less than they are paid during the academic year. 
  • All summer employees must be at least 16 years of age and they must complete a Hartwick College Employment Application, Federal W-4, New York State Withholding Form, Federal Form I-9, and a Housing Agreement form (if applicable) prior to beginning work.  All summer employees who are 16 or 17 years of age must provide working papers. The College is legally obligated to have these forms completed. 
  • All statutory taxes apply to summer positions.
  • All employees of the College are covered by Workers Compensation and as such, by law, any injury sustained while on the job must be reported in writing to the offices of Human Resources and Campus Safety within twenty-four (24) hours of the accident.
  • Summer employment positions are temporary seasonal positions, and therefore not eligible for fringe benefits.  Additionally, because summer employment positions are limited to the three-month break between academic years, hours worked fall within the ACA defined three-month non-assessment period.  Therefore, although they may work full-time hours during summer break, the College does not extend an offer of health insurance upon hire.  If a summer employee works beyond the three-month summer employment period, all hours worked (with exception of hours subsidized through the federal work study program) will be taken into consideration when calculating average hours worked by non-benefits eligible employees for health insurance eligibility.
  • While children of employees of the College are encouraged to apply for a summer position, no employee will be allowed to be supervised by his or her immediate family member.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 431-4315 or humres@hartwick.edu .
