Policy 3.1.3 - Employee Classifications and Working Hours


A. Full-Time Employee – any individual who occupies a College designated full-time
position working a minimum of forty (40) hours per week. All full-time positions
are classified as either full-time curriculum or full-time non-curriculum and exempt
or non-exempt. All full-time employees shall receive annual contracts as stated in
Policy 3.1.2. Full-time curriculum employees shall receive contracts for nine (9)
and no more than twelve (12) months dependent on the employee’s duties. All
other full-time non-curriculum employees shall receive contracts not to exceed one

B. Part-Time Employee – any individual who is employed for less than thirty (30)
hours per week. All part-time employee positions are classified as either part-time
curriculum or part-time non-curriculum. All part-time curriculum employees shall
receive short-term contracts for no greater than one semester. All other part-time
employees shall receive short-term contracts for no greater than six months.

C. Full-Time, Temporary Employee – any individual who is employed in a full-time
position (i.e., 40 hours or more per week) but the job is temporary (i.e., generally
less than six months except in extraordinary situations). All full-time, temporary
employees are classified as exempt or non-exempt. For purposes of the Affordable
Care Act only, any full-time, temporary employee who is anticipated at the date of
hire to work in excess of three (3) months during the academic year is considered a
full-time employee for purposes of an offer of health insurance. All full-time,
temporary employees shall receive short-term contracts and be considered “at will”.

D. Independent Contractors – any individual who is employed by the College pursuant
to a written contract and provides specified services for the College and exercises
his/her own degree of control and independence in providing those services.
Independent contractors are not considered College employees.


The President is hereby authorized to develop administrative procedures to establish
