  1. Employment Status

    Positions are categorized by hours worked, the regularity of the work schedule and the duration of the position.

    1. Full-time — A regular position planned to last longer than six months requiring a minimum of 28 hours per week to be worked on a regularly scheduled basis. The actual annual salary for a full-time position must be 75% or more of the full-time equivalent annual salary.

    2. Part-time — A regular position planned to last longer than six months requiring less than 28 hours per week, but at least 19 hours per week, to be worked on a regularly scheduled basis. The actual annual salary for a part-time position must be less than 75% but at least 51% of the full-time equivalent annual salary.

    3. Limited-time — A regular position planned to last longer than six months limited to less than 19 hours per week to be worked on a regularly scheduled basis. The actual annual salary for a limited-time position must be less than 51% of the full-time equivalent annual salary.

    4. Temporary — A position planned to be of six months or less to be worked on a regularly scheduled basis. If a temporary position is going to extend beyond six months, the supervisor should review the position with a representative of the divisional Human Resources Office to determine whether the status should be either full-time, part-time, or limited-time. If the divisional Human Resources Office representative and the supervisor mutually decide to change the status, neither status nor benefits eligibility can be retroactive.

    5. Casual — A position not requiring work on a regularly scheduled basis and not exceeding 1,000 hours per year.

    6. 9-10 months positions — A regular full-time or part-time position during identified academic periods. The position may be designated for 9 or 10 months. The position can be for a defined period or, alternatively, for the fall and spring semesters with a break between the semesters.
