Policy Reminder: Whistleblower

All faculty, staff, students and volunteers should report suspected or actual wrongful conduct, as outlined in the Whistleblower Policy 1.40. Ohio State is committed to protecting individuals from interference with making a protected disclosure, from retaliation for having made a protected disclosure or for having refused an illegal order. Faculty, staff, students and volunteers may not retaliate against an individual who has made a protected disclosure, participated in an investigation involving a protected disclosure, or who has refused to obey an illegal order. No faculty, staff, student or volunteer may directly or indirectly use or attempt to use the official authority or influence of their positions or offices to interfere with the right of an individual to make a protected disclosure.


Federal Work Study (FWS)

The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program Provides job opportunities for eligible students with financial need who are enrolled at least half time, allowing them to earn money to help pay indirect education expenses. The program encourages community service work and employment related to their course of study.

The best way to be prepared is to have your job posts available when students are actively looking for work. Historically, peak hiring for autumn is mid-July to mid-September.  Reach out to your HR Consultant to begin your FWS Job Requisition to start the hire process.
