Terms of Use for Employers

Accuracy of Job Description

Employers are responsible for ensuring that the job or internship descriptions are an accurate reflection of the employees’ duties.

Internships

Internships should involve work that is relevant to students’ academic training. 

Discriminatory Practices

Federal laws prohibit job discrimination based on race, color, sex, national origin, religion, age, equal pay, and/or disability. These guidelines are available from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Safety

Employers will offer a safe and appropriate work environment for students.

Deadlines on Accepting Positions

Employers should allow students at least 24 hours to decide whether to accept a job or internship.

Payment of Wages

Employers will pay wages to students as agreed upon and as stipulated by the Department of Labor.

Upfront Costs or Required Activities

We 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.

Rescinding of Offers

An offer of employment or internship is a serious commitment on the part of an employer. Employers should not rescind offers they have made.

The Evans School reserves the right to make decisions regarding compliance with these terms at its discretion. For more information regarding ethical employment practices, download the Principles for Employment Professionals Guidelines from the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
