104 Hiring of Temporary and Casual Employees
Departments may directly hire qualified individuals for managerial, professional, and excluded clerical and technical positions for casual employment only. Transfers from the casual to the regular payroll will be treated as new hires subject to the provisions of the pre-employment screening program, standard classification, posting, and recruiting procedures of the Department of Human Resources. In certain cases, offers of employment to casual candidates are contingent upon the successful completion of a background check. Pre-employment screening includes social security number verification, criminal history check, employment verification, and educational verification. Motor vehicle and credit checks will be required for specific position descriptions and/or departments. The background check process will be coordinated by the Department of Human Resources.

The Student Employment Office is a section of the University Financial Aid Office. The office, in response to requests from schools and departments, refers students for employment openings throughout the University. Financial aid students are given priority in placement.
Students interested in Dining Hall positions should apply directly to the Dining Hall of choice.
An alternative source for temporary and casual employees may be an outside employment agency. In using the service, the department makes direct contact with the agency and is responsible for payment. Departments should consult with the Staffing and Career Development Office regarding standard procedures. Questions regarding specific contractual arrangements, particularly in the case of new agencies, should be directed to the Procurement Office.
