## Apprentices must complete monthly work reports (whether working or not).

- Apprentices must report all work-related hours and activities by logging into the SAJAC Student Website at https://student.sajac-boilermakers.org/Login.aspx, whether working or not.
- Apprentices must enter their reports on time and no more than thirty (30) days following the last day of the month.
- The apprentice's required information shall be completed, including the name of their employer, job activities, and the number of hours spent on each work activity.
- Apprentices out of work during a calendar month shall submit a report for zero (0) hours stating they were out of work.
- Apprentices, not supervisors or anyone else, are responsible for completing their reports.
- Filing an incomplete Report, failure to file a report within thirty (30) days of the end of the month, or providing false information shall result in disciplinary action.
- The SAJAC office will verify Apprentices' work hours through the Boilermaker National Funds Office.
