HR to Help you
by Laura Fisk
Do you have concerns in your job as a TA or concerns about your work environment? Are you not sure where to start? I can help.
For example: If you have accommodations as a student related to a disability or medical condition and think those accommodations might help you in your TA role, I can help. If you have concerns about workload or expectations or your working relationship with your instructor—I can help with that too.
Some common issues I help TA’s with are:
- Accommodations needed to help you do your job as a TA, related to a disability or medical condition (examples: special lighting, special chairs or stools, or assistance with grading)
- Using paid sick leave and understanding leave options
- TA workloads and expectations
If I can’t directly assist you with your issue, I am lucky to have a great team of others within L&S Administration I can refer you to—such as Lynne Prost, Assistant Dean for Graduate Student Academic Affairs (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Let me know how I can help!
