Temporary Employment

The University has approved a new temporary standard governing the employment of temporary staff. Effective Jan. 1, temporary staff may work up to, but not exceed, 1,000 hours in a 12-month period. The current temporary position request form will no longer be used, and departments will assume the responsibility for hiring temporary staff and monitoring their hours.

Additional temporary instructions and guidelines

As a reminder, all hires including temporary staff must be made through Success Factors effective Jan. 1. Temporary staff will be hired using the quick hire process.

For questions concerning the temporary standard or the administration of temporary staff, contact tempgroupedrequests@purdue.edu. Questions about hiring temporary staff through SuccessFactors can be directed to sfrecruit@purdue.edu.

Purdue has negotiated temporary staffing services through two staffing firms. The services include recruiting and hiring when a candidate is not known and employing candidates who have been pre-identified by Purdue.

The staffing firms serve specific industries.
