Summer Session 2010 Instructional Funding Transfers

Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Search Information

At one of the summer CLA NOW meetings, the revised Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action website was presented.  We quickly scanned the newer information regarding sample language for job descriptions and interview questions related to diversity. We talked briefly about the affirmative action goals, but were not able to find the presentation by the EO/AA Director, Kimberly Boyd.  Below is the website link for all this information, and the three instructional presentations are located at this site.  Please take some time to review this information and determine the things you, your chair/director, and search committee members will need to know throughout the process of a search.  Thank you, CLA Human Resources

To ensure compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) effective October 15, 2010, CLA Human Resources requires approval prior to making any appointments into the Exempt Temporary or Casual (0007) classification. Fiscal Service Teams and Payroll will not enter 0007 appointments into HRMS without CLA HR approval.

Please provide the following documentation to CLA HR:

  • Brief job description
  • Suggested hourly rate of pay
  • Comparable Civil Service classification (must be an exempt position; cannot be P&A)
  • Supervisor of position
  • Indicate "Temporary" with total number of days for the appointment or "Casual" with total number of hours per week for the appointment
  • Start and End dates (end date required if "temporary")
  • Org Chart
Once CLA HR receives all of the required documentation, the request will be reviewed to ensure appropriate classification, compensation, and exemption status. Once approved, CLA HR will notify the department and provide a position number, department should then work with the fiscal team and payroll to enter the appointment.

Contact Tihara Chadwick (624-0098) or Millie Reid (626-7648) with questions.

P&A Academic Professional Promotion Guidelines

Currently, eleven CLA academic units have promotional guidelines (in selected promotional series) for their Academic Professional employees on file and approved in CLA HR. If your unit would like to recommend P&A employees in a promotional series for promotion for the 2011-12 academic year, guidelines must either be on file and approved in CLA HR or be submitted by October 15 to CLA HR for review and approval. Please contact Millie Reid (6-7648) if you would like to know if you have guidelines on file and/or if you would like assistance in creating guidelines for your unit. See attached for Academic Professional classifications in a promotional series.
