Employers will need to create their Work Study position(s) in Workday. Employers will have to create a Job Requisition in Workday, linked to pre-established Job Catalogs. This link will determine the rate of pay and whether the job is eligible for Work Study subsidy consideration. The Job Posting can be initiated in Workday or used to copy for posting anywhere, including myFuture.
A pre-defined set of casual positions within McGill’s Job Catalog are declared as Work Study-eligible:
- Any job from the Admin & Support Catalog that falls within AMUSE
- Only Graduate and Undergraduate research assistants from the Student Job Catalog
Work Study job opportunities are posted in myFuture, the platform managed by Career & Planning Services (CAPS), and where all student opportunities exist in one place. Work Study jobs will be specially flagged so Work Study-eligible students can identify the priority bank of jobs dedicated to them. Employers control postings going up and down so they remain current.
|1. Create Job Requisition||Refer to the Workday Knowledge Base support aids for more details on how to proceed. Take note of the Supervisory ORG Unit associated with the position. This MUST be the same Supervisory ORG Unit that you requested subsidy hours for.|
|2. Ensure Job is Work Study eligible||
Refer to the Work Study Job Catalogue reference guide.
|3. Post the Job||We strongly encourage you to post the position in MyFuture. Refer to guide - How to Post in MyFuture. Access is required to login to MyFuture. Questions may be directed to the careers.caps [at] mcgill.ca (CAPS office email).|
IMPORTANT: Work Study employees fall under the “McGill Casual Employee” job category. It is the responsibility of the employer to adhere to the appropriate Collective Agreement governing a McGill Casual Employee, especially regarding the minimum rates of pay.
