Departments may hire temporary employees directly, use outside employment agencies, or request recruitment assistance from the Human Resource department.
Duration of Employment
Temporary employment may not exceed 6 months in length. Departments that require longer employment should contact the appropriate Human Resources department in advance to review term or regular employment. No individual may be employed as a temporary longer than 6 months in any 12-month period.
Temporary employment lasting five pay periods or less may be paid as casual labor directly through the Payroll department. Casual labor payments may not exceed five pay periods.
Temporary employees appointed to an existing job classification are paid at the same pay level/grade as the existing classification. Exceptions must be reviewed by the Human Resources department.
If the temporary employment includes duties that are not the same as an existing job classification, the department should provide a brief description of the duties to the Human Resources department. Human Resources will establish a pay rate consistent with the pay for regular employees performing similar work.
Temporary employees will receive only employment benefits required by law. An example would include worker's compensation if the employee is injured on the job.
