At Brown, the responsibility for oversight and management of the student employment function is a collaborative process between the Student Employment Office (SEO), University Human Resources and the Payroll Office. The Student Employment Office is located within Financial Aid and is responsible for managing information regarding student employment opportunities, supporting students in finding employment, working with managers and acting as the liaison to University business offices. University Human Resources is responsible for maintaining compliance with government and federal regulations including I-9s and the Fair Labor Standards Act. The Payroll Office produces paychecks, W-2s and manages applicable tax regulations. You are encouraged to contact any of the offices outlined with questions regarding student employment at Brown University. In general, the Student Employment Office should be your primary contact for any questions regarding student employment at Brown University as we will refer you to other appropriate offices as necessary. University Human Resources, the Payroll Office and employing departments are responsible for ensuring that all employees, including student workers, are paid in accordance with federal and Rhode Island state laws.
