Upfront Costs or Required Activities
Baruch College will not post positions requiring students to pay special fees, purchase training materials, or participate in multi-level marketing as a preliminary condition of employment.
Accuracy of Job Description
Employers are responsible for ensuring that their job or internship description is an accurate reflection of the duties of an employee.
Deadlines on Accepting Positions
Employers should allow students at least 48 hours to decide on whether to accept a job or internship. Positions recruited through On-campus Recruiting (OCR) have other deadline guidelines as described here.
Internships should involve work which is relevant to students’ academic training. Baruch College does not post unpaid internships that are more than 15-20 hours per week. If an internship is mostly administrative or cold calling, the description must state clearly what percentage of the work will be of this nature.
Federal laws prohibit job discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, equal pay and disability. These guidelines are available from The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In addition, The New York City Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination based on gender (including gender identity and sexual harassment), sexual orientation, marital status, and partnership status. As part of CUNY, Baruch also adheres to The City University of New York Non-Discrimination Policy, which “is committed to engendering values and implementing policies that will enhance respect for individuals and their cultures.” The GCMC will not post positions which do not adhere to any of these non-discriminatory guidelines.
Employers will offer students a safe and appropriate work environment.
Employers will not engage in sexual harassment as prohibited by the Policy Against Sexual Harassment of the City University of New York.
Payment of Wages
Employers will pay wages to students as agreed upon and as stipulated by the New York State Department of Labor.
Baruch College’s Graduate Career Management Career reserves the right to approve or deny an employer’s profile and/or full-time, part-time and internship positions at its discretion.
Can International Students work in the United States?
International students generally hold either F-1 (student) or J-1 (exchange visitor) visas while they are studying in the Unites States. The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) permits students in both categories to be employed full-time by U.S. employers through the “Practical Training” program. The INS defines practical training as paid employment related to the student’s field of study. Eligible students need not change their visa status to accept this type of employment.
How long are students eligible to work?
Students with F-1 visa status are eligible for up to 12 months of employment before completion of their degree, or following graduation. Students with J-1 visa status are eligible for 18 months of employment before completion of their degree or following graduation.
How do students obtain permission to work?
A student on an F-1 visa will obtain an EAD (Employment Authorization Document) from the INS upon recommendation of his/her school. Students must submit the appropriate INS forms, as well as a fee. Adjudication may take a few weeks. A J-1 visa holder receives authorization directly from his/her school after receipt of a job offer.
What must I do to employ an international student?
An employer need only complete an I-9 form, as for any new employee.
Employers do not have to:
- Sponsor a student for a green card.
- Prove that no U.S. citizen is available to do the job.
- Complete any special paperwork, other than the usual for U.S. citizens
What will the student have as proof of employability?
A student that holds an F-1 visa will receive a laminated EAD (Employment Authorization Document) card, which is similar to a driver’s license. It is issued by the INS upon receipt of a recommendation from the student’s school. A J-1 visa holder is authorized by his or her school and will receive an extended IAP-66 (Pink immigration form) once he or she has a job offer letter.
Should taxes be withheld from the student’s pay?
Contributions for Social Security should not be withheld from wages of non-immigrant students on authorized practical training; however, earnings from student employment are usually subject to federal and state income taxes. Refer to IRS publications 518 and 519 for additional information.
What if I want to extend the student’s employment?
Students are eligible to apply for an H-1B (temporary worker) visa, which can provide three to six additional years of employment. A student on an F-1 visa, or a student on a J-1 visa not subject to home residency requirement, may continue to be employed, provided that a change of visa status (usually to H-1B) is applied for and approved by the INS. It is only valid for employment with the company that petitioned the student. The international graduate must reapply to the INS if he or she wishes to change firms.
What role do I play in obtaining an H-1B visa?
Employers should apply for an H-1B petition a few months before practical training expires. Employers must obtain an approved Labor Condition application from the Local Department of Labor office attesting to salary and working conditions in order to file for the H-1B visa. The cost for processing this paperwork may be absorbed by the employer or the employee, according to employer’s policies.
Are there any restrictions on obtaining an H-1B visa?
A student on a J-1 visa may be subject to a home residency requirement. This requires the student to return home for two years after the completion of practical training before changing to another visa status in the United States. He or she is ineligible for H-1B status until the residency requirement is fulfilled or waived.
What are the advantages of hiring an international student?
International Students can offer employers a wide range of skills and abilities:
- Proven English language ability and an understanding of American culture.
- Multiple language skills.
- Demonstrated motivation.
- Willingness to adapt to new situations.
- Knowledge of business practices in another country.
