Hiring Instructional Assistants (IAs)

The following applies to all remunerated undergraduate and graduate students employed as Instructional Assistants (IAs) by the Faculties and Brantford Campus of Wilfrid Laurier University. It does not apply when the source of funding is through the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research. Duties of IAs may include acting as markers, proctors, laboratory demonstrators and/or class assistants. Students acting solely as marker or proctors will be identified as IA Markers or IA Proctors.

Positions will be posted for five consecutive working days in each applicable department, on the department webpage and through a link from the Faculty webpage. The posted position description will include all details such as duties, hours of work, and rate of pay. Only if there are no Laurier students who meet the qualifications of the position will a non-Laurier student be considered. Faculty members must be able to strongly demonstrate in writing that they have tried all avenues of trying to hire students from Laurier, Waterloo, Guelph or McMaster (universities with which Laurier has joint programs), and that the people hired are in degree granting programs at the other institutions. A PhD student may be hired if they are ABD (all but dissertation), but they may not be hired if their ABD has lapsed.

The rate of pay per hour shall be uniform across the University. Positions are reviewed annually; the approved percentage increase shall be applied to all IA rates effective May 1 of each year. The amount of pay given in lieu of vacation will be added onto the wage rate. An IA will be remunerated only for hours worked.

At the beginning of each term, supervisors shall meet with their IA(s) for discussion of the work expected, the methods to be used in evaluating the IA’s work, and the scheduling of duties throughout the term. IA duties extend from the date lectures begin until the due date for course marks and may be distributed unevenly over the term. Anticipated significant fluctuations shall be clearly identified at the time of course assignment. The supervisor and IA shall sign a copy of the position description which will be kept on file with the applicable department. A copy will be made for the student upon request. IAs shall identify to the supervisor any academic obligations that may interfere with their duties. If demands of the IA’s duties interfere with a student’s own academic program, he/she should speak with the supervisor. Except in emergencies, IAs shall receive at least one week’s notice of changes in their duties.

A full-time graduate student IA may work an average of 10 hours per week, up to a maximum of 520 hours per twelve-month period. Research towards the graduate thesis is not included in this restriction. Given variations in course requirements, there may be an uneven distribution of work on a week-by-week basis. Some weeks an instructor may require a graduate student IA to work more or less than 10 hours per week because of the scheduling of such course requirements as mid-term exams, term papers, lab reports or final exams.

The maximum number of hours per week may include: attendance at lectures, preparation time, if the IA involves classroom contact time (e.g., tutorial, lab, lecture, seminar); meeting time with the instructor; formal office hours, as required in each individual IA position. Voluntary attendance at professional development workshops or seminars does not count toward the maximum number of hours per week or term.  

Faculty must recognize that students also have course requirements that must be met, and these may be due at about the same time as they are carrying out their IA duties (especially in mid-term or at the end of term). Thus an undergraduate IA will normally work an average of 15 hours per week or less, per term, per IA contract. Any exceptions to this maximum must be agreed to, in writing, by the IA in advance of the week in which the 10- or 15-hour limits are to be exceeded.

Hours not required in one term cannot be carried forward to a subsequent terrm.

Where a dispute arises, the student shall consult with the supervisor in an attempt to resolve the matter. Should this process fail to resolve the dispute, written correspondence on the matter should be addressed to the department Chair by both the supervisor and the student. If these consultations should fail to resolve the dispute a ruling will be sought from the Faculty Dean. In the case of graduate students, the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research will also be consulted.
