24. Per Diem Positions
January 1, 2001
It is the policy of the University to complement career and limited appointments with per diem appointments when necessary to maintain staffing levels for temporary and emergency periods in critical areas of University operations.
Classification of per diem positions and "By Agreement" rates of pay for each per diem class shall be determined locally.
An individual is eligible for appointment to a per diem position when that individual meets the qualifications established for the parallel class used for career positions.
D. OVERTIME AND INSURED BENEFITS
Overtime. Overtime shall be compensated as provided in Staff Policy 32. Because of hourly pay practices, an employee appointed to a per diem position in an exempt title shall be treated as a non-exempt employee subject to FLSA minimum wage and overtime provisions.
Benefits. An incumbent of a per diem position is normally excluded from participation in the group insurance and retirement programs sponsored by the University. (See the group insurance and retirement system regulations.)
E. PERSONNEL POLICIES
An incumbent of a per diem position is subject to the provisions of the following Staff Personnel Policies only:
12 Nondiscrimination in Employment
31 Hours of Work
36 Classification of Positions
