Teaching can place added stress and strain on the performance of your normal job responsibilities.
No. The Dean of a school or college, or their representative that is requesting a staff member teach a class shall obtain approval from the primary department supervisor and authorization from the Provost’s Office. Business Officers from both the home/primary department and the teaching department should approve of any non-exempt staff teaching due to the potential of unexpected additional costs. This process must be completed in advance and without solicitation by a staff member.
The request for approval must be done each semester, to include a review of the number of hours for the course, the course time, and the amount of pay. Any additional pay proposed should not exceed the base lecturer/adjunct rate of pay set by the academic department or the particular discipline and course.Other situations that may arise will be handled on an exception basis (the appropriate Human Resources Consultant will be contacted to request exceptions).
If the staff member is non-exempt (paid hourly) then the additional pay will be an hourly rate for the expected number of hours per week during the semester. The expected number of hours worked will include preparation hours and time teaching. The staff member’s home department and the faculty department must keep in mind that the additional teaching will cause overtime pay for the employee.
