A temporary employee's appointment may be ended at any time
during their appointment.
For temporary employees on term contracts, those that are .5
FTE or more for more than 90 days, a PER 39 (pdf) must be submitted to Human Resources.
No letter of resignation or PER 16 is required.
Human Resources will automatically terminate temporary employees
on positions of less than .5 FTE or .5 FTE or more for less than 90 days based on the
end of temporary date. No PER 39 is necessary unless the termination
date is different than the end of temporary date.
The maximum vacation leave hours a 12-month unclassified employee
can be paid is 176 hours. Nine-month employees do not earn vacation
leave. Employees transferring to another agency will only be
paid for any compensatory time they may have. Annual leave (if
applicable) and sick leave should transfer to new agency.
Sick leave is paid out on retirements only and the amount allowable
is based on years of service and hours accumulated.
If at time of retirement, employee has 8 years of service and
at least 800 hours of sick leave pay out will be 30 days or 240
hours, if 15 years of service and at least 1000 hours of sick
leave payout will be 45 days or 360 hours, if 25 or more years
of service and at least 1200 hours of sick leave payout will
be 60 days or 480 hours.
Vacation and sick leave payouts at retirement are funded from
the state leave assessment fund, not the normal paycheck funding.
