Temporary positions are intended to accommodate temporary needs of no more than twelve (12) months where the appointment is not intended to be permanent, and with no expectation of employment beyond the period specified. Under no circumstance shall the appointment exceed a period of twelve (12) months.
There are specific requirements for different lengths of temporary employment:
The Compensation Office provides a list of titles that are frequently utilized for temporary positions to assist in the selection of a title, and corresponding rate of pay, that best fits the needs of the department. By selecting one of these titles a department is less likely to have to adjust the employee’s rate of pay IF the length of employment is extended past four months.
For temporary positions that extend past four months, the final determination of title and pay will be completed by the Compensation Office.
For more information see: Temporary Staff Entry Pay Rates
Once the department has determined the length of employment and selected the best fit title the forms to the right, under resources, are required.
