The Human Resources Department is available to assist you in identifying, selecting, and documenting your temporary/hourly employees.
The University employs temporary employees to meet short-term and intermittent workload needs. Temporary/Hourly appointments may not exceed 1,050 hours in a twelve consecutive month period from the original date of hire. Overtime hours are not included in the 1,050 hours. Hours worked in all temporary positions that an employee holds at CWU count toward the total hours worked. If an employee has one temporary position and accepts another, the hours from both CWU temporary positions count toward the total hours the employee may work during one year.
Note: If the temporary work is similar to work performed by a classified cyclic employee who is on a period of cyclic leave, the temporary work should first be offered to the classified employee.
Generally, if a student is taking less than 6 credit hours for undergraduate or 5 credit hours for graduate, the individual is hired as a Temporary/Hourly employee.
