Terra State Community College’s Career Services adheres to the National Association
of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Principles for Professional Practice for Career Services
and Employment Professionals and expects employers to do the same.
Before beginning work, federal law requires that students complete a W-4 form in order
for the appropriate taxes to be deducted from their wages. All wages earned during
a work-based learning experience are subject to IRS taxation.
Minimum Wages, Hours, and Overtime Pay
Internship work experiences are included under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Employers
must comply with the provisions regarding minimum wage, hours, and overtime pay.
According to Section 4141.01(A)(3)(e)(ii) of the Ohio Revised Code, all internship
students are ineligible for unemployment compensation based on their employment under
a work-based learning program. In order for an employer to avoid having to pay unemployment
tax for internship employees, the employer must provide the internship employee with
an award letter stating:
The employment is temporary (include specific date range of employment)
The employment is part time or full time
The employee is registered to earn academic credit at Terra State Community College
for the specified period of employment.
If an employer chooses to extend the employment period and the employee is registered
for academic credit for the new employment period, a new award letter must be created.
If an employer chooses to extend the employment period and the employee will not be
registered academic credit, the employer will be responsible to pay unemployment tax
for this new employment period.
Students with Disabilities
Employers are required by law to provide reasonable accommodation for the physical
or mental limitations of a qualified person with disabilities. If a reasonable accommodation
is needed in order to apply for an internship position or to perform essential job
functions, it is the student’s responsibility to inform the prospective employer and
the Career Services Office that an accommodation is needed.
