News for 98
Employment Forms Computerized
In keeping with the new UF requirement that all students acquire or have access to a computer, Student
Employment is taking steps to computerize many of its forms and publications! Our UF Employers Handbook
is already available on Student Financial Affairs' website. Several forms in the handbook, such as the Pay Rate
Justification Form, can be printed for use directly from this handbook. We have also added print and use
versions of the SP-100 and the new Form UPS 50 (includes the Loyalty Oath, Intellectual Property Agreement,
Controlled Substance Questionnaire,and Florida Retirement Plan Form).

SP-100 on THE WEB
The Student Assistant Appointment Form (SP/100) will soon be available on the web in a format usable by UF
offices to appoint student assistants to payroll online. We are excited about implementing this new format and
will let you know as soon as it is available. We see this as a step towards computerizing employment

20-Hour Work Week Lifted
Under new guidelines received from the Internal Revenue Service, the restriction limiting student employees to
20 hours of work per week to qualify for FICA tax exemption has been lifted. Effective since May 3, 1998, student
assistants are no longer limited to working 20 hours weekly. In some cases, they may work up to 40 hours
weekly. UF policy is that the number of hours a student may work is based on the number of credit hours for
which they are enrolled. Some students who wish to increase their work hours will need to petition. For more
information, see the Deans, Directors, and Department Chairmen memo dated April 6, 1998, or call Student
Employment at 392-0296 for a copy of the memo.

Student Employment Week (April 5-11, 1998)
We hope that during UF's first participation in National Student Employment Week this April you recognized
your student employees by showing them how much you appreciate them--how valuable they are to your
department and the university. Please share with us the type of activities, gift, ceremonies, or acts of
appreciation you planned for your students during this week. In 1999-2000, we hope to widen participation and
nominate a UF student for "student of the year" with the Student Association for Southern Education
Let us know how you recognized your students. Contact: Gordon Andrews, Assistant Director, at P. 0. Box
114025, S-107 Criser Hall.

Information File correctly.
