Student Employment and Minimum Wage

Feb 9/09

All Managers,

Please be advised effective March 31, 2009 Minimum Wage in Ontario will increase to $9.50 per hour. Effective this date, all student employees must be paid at least $9.50 per hour and the payroll department will automatically adjust any students paid below this rate commencing March 31st.

To assist managers in determining appropriate wages for student employees, and to provide information on other student employment matters, we have created a Student Employees section on the Human Resources webpage under Employee Groups. Please click on this link  to view information on Student Wage Guidelines, Student Hiring Procedures, Vacation & Holiday Pay for Students, and Payroll Procedures & Timelines. This information has been compiled and created in consultation with a number of department managers who employ students regularly. We hope you find it helpful and that it will encourage more consistent student employment practices across campus. Please ensure this information is shared with everyone in your area who hires and supervises students.

Please contact Human Resources if you have any questions. Thank-you,

Pamela Cant
Director, Total Compensation
