Third Party Staffing
The SCDC does not post positions from third party staffing agencies online. If your position/company falls into this category, you may still complete this form for review. If accepted, the opening may instead be displayed in the Employment Binders available to students in our office.
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.
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.
Internships should involve work which is relevant to students' academic training. In addition, we do not post unpaid internships that are more than 10-15 hours per week.
If your internship is administrative or cold calling, the description must state clearly what percentage of the work will be of this nature. Please note we will not post internships that are primarily administrative or cold calling unless interns are paid at least minimum wage ($7.25/hr in New York State, as of July 24, 2009 according to US Dept. of Labor, Employment Standards Administration), or unless they are restructured to include a learning experience.

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 SCDC 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 for students. A private home usually is not considered appropriate for internships.
Employers will not engage in sexual harassment as prohibited by the Policy Against Sexual Harassment of the City University of New York available here.
Deadlines on Accepting Positions
Employers should allow students at least 24 hours to decide on whether to accept a job or internship. Positions recruited through on-campus recruiting have other deadline rules.
Payment of Wages
Employers will pay wages to students as agreed upon and as stipulated by the New York State Department of Labor.
The SCDC reserves the right to make these decisions at its discretion. For more information regarding ethical employment practices, see the Principles for Employment Professionals guidelines from NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers).
