  • or 20 hours or more per week for less than 20 weeks per year

Your Options PRIOR to hiring

  • Seasonal: Works less than 8 months per year during an institutionally designated "season," such as the agricultural growing season. A seasonal employee must be terminated at the end of the institutionally recognized season with a start and end date, but may be rehired for a future season although there is no guarantee of re-employment. Need prior approval from HR/Payroll. Please submit request to
  • 1-year appointment: Hired into a position (potential employee knows prior to hire) that has a start and end date (taken off of payroll). Position/employee cannot be continued after that date. Need prior approval from HR/Payroll, benefitted or non-benefitted.
  • Hire a timelip/seasonal position following a structured recruitment process through HR/Payroll: Advertise with a statement indicating the possibility of the position becoming a benefitted full-time position in the future. Follow the recruitment process: Request to Recruit, advertise for 10 working days, structured interview process, etc.
  • Determine the less than 20 weeks the employee/position needs to work 20 or more hours per week in a rolling calendar year.

Your employee has worked longer than policy allows:

  • Terminate the employee
