Interim Appointments

May be used to recognize a time limited assignment of performing the responsibilities of another position.

Staff member is transferred from their current position number to a vacant position on a time limited basis. Interim appointments will normally not exceed twelve (12) months; however, extensions may be requested from University Human Resources in exceptional circumstances.

If fully functional and competent in the interim classification, salary offer should normally be within the median zone. If not fully competent or with less than full responsibilities, salary offer may be between the minimum of the market range and the bottom of the median zone; salary offer cannot be below market range minimum. Exceptional circumstances may place the salary above the median zone, but not to exceed the market range maximum.

All interim salary rates require approval by University Human Resources. At the end of the interim appointment, the staff member's salary and position title will revert to their former appointment. Any salary increases that the staff member would have received in their former appointment will be included when determining their salary at the end of this interim appointment.  Fiscal year increases will be factored in based on the percentage increase rather than the dollar amount.

Effective date is the day the staff member transferred into the vacant position.
