UCR Local Procedure 3 - TYPES OF APPOINTMENTS (Partial-Year Career)
August 1, 2007

  1. RELATED POLICIES AND REFERENCES
    1. Personnel Policy 3 - Types of Appointments
    2. Personnel Policy 2.210 - Absence from Work
    3. Personnel Policy 60 – Layoff and Reduction in Time From Professional and Support Staff Career Positions
  2. DEFINITIONS
    1. Partial Year Career Appointment:  A partial-year career appointment is established to accommodate foreseeable seasonal fluctuations in staffing, budgetary, operational, or other needs. A partial-year career appointment contains regularly scheduled periods (furloughs), not to exceed three months per calendar year, during which the incumbent remains an employee but is not at work. Employees holding partial-year career appointments may choose to receive paychecks during working months only or, alternatively, to spread paychecks over twelve months
    2. Furlough: The scheduled periods during which employees in partial-year career positions are not at work are designated as furloughs.
  3. PROCEDURES
    1. Initiating a Partial Year Career Position
      1. The department head determines the need to designate new positions as partial-year or reassign existing vacant positions to partial-year appointments. In these cases, the department head follows the normal recruitment procedures
      2. When appropriate, the department head may determine the need to reassign filled full-year positions to partial-year positions. In these cases, employees in the affected classification and department who are interested in having partial-year career positions shall be given first priority for those positions. Otherwise, for Professional and Staff positions only, the reassignment of filled positions to partial-year shall be considered an indefinite reduction in time, and the incumbents shall be transferred in accordance with the provisions of Personnel Policy 60: Layoff and Reduction in Time From Professional and Support Staff Career Positions
    2. Right to Recall and Preference for Full-Year Positions for Professional and Support Staff
      Right to recall and preference for re-employment for incumbents involuntarily reassigned to partial-year career positions shall be in accordance with the provisions of Personnel Policy 60: Layoff and Reduction in Time From Professional and Support Staff Career Positions
  4. BENEFITS
    1. Employees on furlough shall be provided the University's contribution to the cost of University-sponsored health plans (health, dental, optical, and temporary disability) for a maximum period of three (3) months in a calendar year where the employees' earnings are insufficient to otherwise generate the University's contribution
    2. The University-provided life insurance continues during furlough; however, the employee-paid life insurance is continued only if employees make direct payment of premiums
    3. The University-paid temporary disability continues during furlough; however, the employee-paid temporary disability is continued only if employees make direct payment of premiums
    4. Time on furlough is not time on pay status and, therefore, is not qualifying time for merit increases, vacation and sick leave accruals, holiday pay for absences in excess of 20 days (see Personnel Policy 2.210), or service computation for seniority or service awards. UCRP service credit is received during furlough so long as the annual appointment does not drop below 100 percent for nine (9) months (equivalent to a 75 percent appointment)
    5. Employees on furlough are responsible for arranging with the Payroll Office for the payment of the employee's portion of any premiums that are not fully covered by a University contribution
  5. RESPONSIBILITIES
    1. Employee
      Arrange with the Payroll Office for the payment of the employee's portion of any premiums not fully covered by University contribution during furlough
    2. Department
      Approve partial-year career positions and, in the case of involuntary reassignment of Professional and Support Staff incumbents to partial-year positions, following the provisions of Personnel Policy 60: Layoff and Reduction in Time From Professional and Support Staff Career Positions
