Temporary/variable hour employees

Who are considered variable hour employees?

Temporary employees and variable hour employees are employees who primarily work in temporary non-benefit eligible positions.  Temporary positions are those positions not intended to continue indefinitely or whose hours vary and are not positions that offer benefits.

Temporary positions may be filled by employees that are classified in a wide range of variable hour employment categories, including student employment, graduate assistantship, temporary hourly/salaried employment and part-time faculty.

Temporary/variable hour employees can be hired through the university's payroll or an outside temporary staffing agency with Human Resources review.
