Michigan State Residential and Hospitality Services, or RHS, student employees were notified Monday that they would be placed on a leave beginning Oct. 4, according to a letter from RHS Human Resources.
This notification was sent out to more than 700 RHS student team members, according to RHS Chief Communications Officer Kat Cooper. Notifications were sent out Monday, giving those furloughed a short 12-day notice.
"Unfortunately, due to the current house count on campus, we do not have enough work or income to maintain all student positions," Cooper said in an email. "This is a temporary measure, and we will look to bring these students back to work as soon as we have work to perform."
