Temporary Classified Appointments

Temporary classified employees may be hired on campus to fill emergency, non-recurring, short-term work not to exceed 1040 hours in a one-year period. Temporary employees may also be hired to fill in for an employee on an approved leave for the duration of the leave. Temporary appointments must be approved by the Employment Manager.

Temporary classified employees may be hired into any OUS classification and paid the hourly equivalent of one of the steps within the pay range. If the work to be performed does not fit into an existing classification, the non-regular designation may be used and an appropriate hourly rate established. In rare instances, pay other than hourly can be approved.

Position descriptions are not required for temporary appointments. If you are unsure of the classification of the temporary employee you need, the Employment Manager or HR Analyst are available to assist in determining an appropriate classification.

Temporary appointments may be filled by direct appointment; a formal search is not required. Former employees and former student workers are good candidates for temporary employment. Retirees receiving PERS benefits may work for an employer participating in PERS up to 1039 hours per calendar year and still maintain their retirement benefits. The Employment Manager maintains a list of retirees interested in temporary work and may recommend other applicants such as academic year employees interested in employment during the summer.

To fill a temporary classified position, including non-regular appointments, submit a Request to Hire Form. Make sure that you clearly explain the reason and duration of the temporary appointment. Please see the Temporary Classified Memo.
