Temporary Employment - Supervisor


General FAQs

What is Temporary Employment?

As defined in UPS Operational Policy HR 7: University Staff and Temporary & Project Appointments, the following are attributes specific to a temporary appointment:

  • Temporary employees have no expectation of continued employment. The total time worked by an individual temporary employee in a temporary appointment cannot exceed 1,040 hours in a twelve-month period.
  • Temporary employees are hired for positions where the hours worked by the employee will never exceed 1,040 hours in a twelve-month period because the position is seasonal in nature or occurs on an irregular basis.

Employment in a university staff temporary employee position does not guarantee permanent employment. UW-Stout encourages Temporary Employment employees to continue to seek permanent employment.

What are my responsibilities as supervisor?

  • Orientation to the office/department (see Supervisor Orientation Checklist)
  • Scheduling of hours and assigning of duties
  • Monitoring hours to stay within the 1,040 limitation
