This policy is effective November 1, 2003. It applies to personnel
performing non-bargaining unit work at SLAC who are hired through
temporary staffing agencies (commonly referred to as "job shoppers"). It
specifically excludes temporary personnel performing construction work
subject to Davis-Bacon Act regulations. Temporary personnel doing work
normally performed by bargaining unit workers are covered by Side Letter
#6 of the Labor Agreement between Stanford University and United Stanford
Temporary personnel may be hired to fill in during extended absences of
regular staff, to cover time between a termination and the filling of that
position, to cover peak workloads, to provide a short term buffer for
fluctuating work loads, or to assist on projects of short term duration
(typically a year or less).
Given these uses of temporary staff, it is SLAC policy that temporary
personnel are limited to a maximum one-year assignment. At the conclusion
of one year, the temporary assignment must end and the temporary person
must be let go or hired as a regular or fixed term employee; the position
may not be filled with another temporary staff person.
Exceptions to this policy will be considered on a case-by-case basis
and must be approved by the Division Director and the Director of Human
Temporary personnel who have been in an assignment at SLAC longer than
one year as of November 1, 2003, will be allowed to remain for up to six
months before the provisions of this policy are enforced. All other
temporary personnel will be subject to this policy as their assignment
reaches one year.
