Professional Staff Temporary Appointment
- Why are monthly-paid project appointments
limited to nine months?
- When an appointment will last more than nine months the University does not consider it to be "temporary." There are many research funded "regular" positions
that last limited periods of time.
- What should I do if we anticipate
additional funding in the future but only have limited funding right
- Create a professional staff temporary appointment. But if additional funding is awarded and the position will extend beyond nine months, you will need to conduct a recruitment to fill the regular appointment. The University is an
equal opportunity employer and all qualifying applicants
must receive equal consideration. Open your recruitment as soon as you know that you will have the funds to extend the appointment so that you can equally consider each available candidate.
- If I conduct a regular recruitment
for a project appointment and it transitions to a regular professional
staff position, is a new recruitment necessary?
- No. However,
a complete position description, if not previously
developed, will be needed. The Compensation Office will reevaluate the position to determine its professional staff exemption status and payroll title.
- Do employees in hourly or monthly-paid temporary professional staff appointments
receive legislatively approved
- Employees in professional staff temporary appointments
do not automatically receive legislatively approved
salary increases and are not included in the allocation
of state. However, the employing unit may make a salary adjustment out of unit funds.
- What should I do if the Compensation Office determines that a proposed
professional staff temporary appointment does not meet professional
staff exemption criteria, and I cannot find a classified
staff hourly title that I think is appropriate?
- Contact your Employment Specialist (ES) or Compensation Consultant to identify a classified title that can be used to fill your position.
