Hiring Casual or Temporary Employees

Provided departments have adequate funding, managers may hire temporary employees to fill short-term jobs or to manage periods of heavy workload. Unlike independent contractors and Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) participants who generally are paid through a stipend or a grant, casual and short-term professional employees are hired directly onto the University’s payroll.

Another alternative is to hire individuals through a temporary agency. Hiring managers are expected to utilize the services of firms that are approved by and have contracts with the University. These firms fulfill certain legal or regulatory compliance requirements. Also, favorable rates and terms have been pre-negotiated by the University. Hiring managers can refer to a list of approved employment agencies available on the HR website. 
 

For more specific information, refer to the Temporary Employee Policy, which was updated in early November, or contact HR.
