Additional employment

In an effort to provide maximum flexibility for faculty unit employees and to remain compliant with Article 36 of the CFA-CSU Agreement and the CSU Additional Employment (AE) Policy, additional employment (overload) will be calculated over the entire contract period of a faculty unit employee. A maximum of 125% time-base is allowed under certain circumstances. For academic year (AY) faculty unit employees, the period of calculation will start on the first day of the Fall semester and end after the last day of the Spring semester of each academic year. For 12-month faculty unit employees, the period of calculation will start on January 1 and end on December 31, 11:59 P.M., of each calendar year.

Faculty must complete the Additional Employment Pre-Approval form if additional employment takes place on academic workdays during the academic year.

Staff must complete the Additional Employment Pre-Approval form, provide a current work schedule, AND have their manager's approval before any additional employment takes place.

More resources on additional employment can be found in the Related Documents & Forms box or you may contact University Personnel at (831) 582-3389 with any questions.

Special consultants (academic)

Special consultants perform special assignments of a temporary nature, based on a particular knowledge, ability, or expertise. This classification should be used for work that meets the “exempt” criteria of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and is not to be used for non-exempt work. Special Consultants perform administrative studies, make appropriate recommendations, conduct oral briefings of study results, and prepare written reports. Special Consultants may also work with the personnel of an organization to implement a desired plan of change, providing the necessary coordination guidance, and training. For information regarding Special Consultants appointments that are non-academic or do not involve current staff, please visit the Emergency Appointments webpage. Faculty appointments must comply with the CSUMB guidelines, CSU Policy and applicable Collective Bargaining Agreements.
