A temporary employee may work a full, normal schedule usually to replace a status employee on leave of absence.  Such appointments are for a period of up to three months. In special cases, the appointment may be extended, but only upon the approval of the Director of the State Universities Civil Service System, and may never exceed six months less one day for total time worked. The employee must be tested in the appropriate Civil Service classification and must be referred from the employment register.

The salary range shall correspond to the range in effect for status employment in the class. Starting salary shall be at the minimum of the range. Adjustments in salary shall be given to temporary employees whose salary falls below the minimum of the range as a result of a change in the salary range for status employees in the same classification. Human Resource Services shall implement such adjustments with notification of the change sent to the employing department.
