Temporary Employees

A temporary employee is someone who fills a temporary position, as defined below, and who is not enrolled as a student at any of the University of Missouri campuses.

Temporary employees can be hired for a maximum of 1,499 hours in any 12-month period or no more than nine continuous months at 75% or higher. Hours are considered for all positions, not by department only. UM retirees are limited to a maximum of 29 hours per week. When a temporary employee is getting close to the 1,499 hours, the supervisor will receive an email notification from HR.

If you need to post a temporary position, use the staff recruit instructions. You will need to ensure to clearly state in the job title and posting that it is a temporary position. All of the other steps will remain the same.
