COVID-19 Update for Students: May 1

Mon May 4, 2020 at 04:18 PM


For the month of May, Brazosport College will continue to pay regular part-time staff and eligible student assistants for a minimum of 19 hours per week.  However, the College will not pay for spring semester student assistants who do not continue as active students during the summer terms.  A student assistant must be enrolled to take courses this summer to continue as a student assistant.  The College will determine at a later date how to handle regular part-time staff and student assistant pay for the months of June and July.

Part-time staff and student assistants who normally use the Empower MyHR timesheet process and their supervisors should review the instructions for part-time and student workers (This does NOT apply to employees who enter their time through other systems; e.g., through Report Time or the CBIT system).

It is the responsibility of the part-time employee or student worker to enter their time during this period of alternative operations/campus closure.

As was stated previously, part-time employees and student workers will be paid for a minimum of 19 hours per week for anyone who was paid for the March pay cycle (pay date March 20) and is available for work. Hours cannot exceed the 19 hour weekly limit unless the employee actually physically worked more than 19 hours. Report actual hours worked as ‘Regular Hours’ and report hours available to work as ‘Other’.

Please make sure a comment is made on every entry during the period of alternative operations based on the attached instructions. On the rare occasion that a supervisor must make the entry on behalf of their employee, they should review the MyHR timesheet instructions reference above for the employees and also review and follow the supervisor instructions.
