Part-time academic staff or faculty expanding section

When paying an employee* who has an FTE lower than 100%, it is our obligation to pay for additional duties by adding FTE rather than by lump sum payment. It is generally permissible to pay a lump sum payment when the duration of the assignment is less than one month, longer term assignments should be made using a salary and FTE. In some cases, an hourly academic staff appointment may be appropriate. HR can help determine the appropriate payment type and should be consulted to approve lump sum payments to part-time employee.

In any case, an employee action form (EAF) is needed.
