This section is for new temporary appointments into non-exempt University Staff positions or exempt Academic Staff and Limited positions. University Staff Temporary Employees (USTEs) are Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) non-exempt positions and Waiver/Interim appointments are FLSA exempt based on duties. FLSA statuses can be found within the SJD Library.
For all positions:
Fill out the Position Description Template and send to HR-UWSP@support.uwsp.edu for the position to be titled.
With the Background Check Form (CBC/Fin/SHRC/POPE), request the necessary checks to be completed.
University Staff Temporary Employees (USTEs)
Fill out the University Staff Temporary Employee Request and route through the signature approval chain through DocuSign ending with HRfirstname.lastname@example.org being the final "Receives a Copy". (DocuSign eSignature assistance)
USTEs are limited to 1,040 hours in a 12-month period. There are also Affordable Care Act (ACA) implications. It is the best practice to keep USTEs at 29.75 hours a week or fewer OR 130 hours a month or fewer.
If the funding involves a 133 or 144 account, please route through the Grant Accountant.
If you do not have an individual identified, list TBD on the USTE Request Form and speak with your HR Business Partner on options to find a candidate.
If you would like to offer a salary above the minimum of the range, you must seek approval from the Director of HR.
Please provide three weeks lead time before the start date for HR to conduct checks and prepare the contract and on-boarding information.
Waiver/Interim Academic Staff and Limited Appointments
RAF-Recommendation for FASLI Appointment Form
If this position will require a FASLI employee to be on Non-Medical Leave of Absence or Unpaid Leave Without Pay, see the UWSP Time, Absence, and Earnings page, Extended Leave section.
If this position will cause an overload, a Request of Faculty or Academic Staff Overload Appointment must be completed. The overload form and additional information are available on the Academic Affairs forms page.
If an additional appointment is given after the original contract has been signed (i.e., increasing from 6 credits to 9 credits), just the Standalone PAF is needed. It should reference the original packet PAF number. If this creates an overload, the Overload Form is also needed. Once approved it will be used with the original appointment information to create an additional appointment contract. If the original contract has not been signed, the contract can be changed before being signed.
For appointments where pay is being held until after work needs to be completed (i.e., course development, dissertation chair), the Standalone PAF is needed in addition to the packet. This allows for contract processing to occur and pay to be held until after the work is completed.
