FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS):

What is Temporary Employment?

Temporary Employment is defined as an appointment of a person to perform a grouping of duties and responsibilities on a non-permanent, non-project basis. A temporary appointment is restricted to 1,040 hours or less within a block of time which consists of 26 consecutive biweekly payroll periods and which ends on the anniversary date of the appointment. Employment in a temporary position does not guarantee permanent employment.

Can one person work two temporary positions at the same time?

Temporary employees may work on more than one appointment at a time IF the appointments are in different positions. "Different positions" are identified by a variety of factors, such as different program areas, a different title, etc.

What does the hourly limitation mean and how are hours monitored?

The hourly limitation (1,040 during 26 consecutive biweekly payroll periods) applies to the specific temporary duties that the person is performing in an appointment. During one year, starting from the date of employment, a person is limited to 1,040 hours in an appointment. If the individual reaches the hourly maximum, but the need for the position continues, the individual must be terminated and a new temporary employment position appointed. In other words, the hourly limitation applies to the person, not the position.

Are temporary employees eligible for benefits?

Upon initial appointment, temporary employees usually are eligible only for social security, workers compensation and unemployment insurance, and certain employee-pay-all benefit programs. Most benefits become available when and if the temporary employee qualifies for coverage under the Wisconsin Retirement System (WRS). Temporary employees do not earn holidays, vacation, or sick leave.
