Policy & Procedures Regarding Temporary Employees

The following are excerpts from the Human Resources Policy & Procedures manual. For more information click on the following link, Policy & Procedures for Temporary employees:

Temporary employees may be appointed for a period of up to two years. Those appointed for more than six months are eligible for benefits from the beginning of the appointment, provided the position is half-time or greater. Those appointed for six months or less are not eligible for benefits. An employee who is reappointed after the first six months of a temporary appointment is eligible for benefits. If the second appointment is in another UNL position, and if it occurs within the same calendar month in which the separation occurs, the employee is eligible for benefits.

Employees will not be granted temporary appointments in the same department for more than two years, but they are eligible for reappointment after a three-month break in employment. Under the same provisions, employees may be appointed to subsequent temporary appointments in different departments.

Benefits for eligible temporary employees include the following: health and life insurance, sick and vacation leave, injury leave, civil leave, and military leave. Temporary employees are not eligible for tuition remission, administrative leave, funeral leave, or University contributions to retirement.
