We want to make you aware of upcoming major changes to the overtime rules under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). The FLSA is a federal law that Hobart and William Smith Colleges must follow. The Department of Labor (DOL) communicated these rule changes over the summer and since then the Office of Human Resources along with senior staff have been researching and preparing for the impact of these changes on the HWS campus. The new FLSA rules take effect December 1, 2016. Read More >>

New Student Employment webpage

Great news! A Student Employment webpage is now live on the Office of Human Resources website. The Student Employment webpage provides useful information for students, parents, and campus departments interested in hiring student workers. The webpage is a convenient and central place for students to view available opportunities across campus and to learn about what is required of them when working on campus.

If your department is interested in hiring student employees you should contact Jennifer Hughes at or visit the webpage for posting instructions.
