Limited Term Employees (LTE)

Limited Term Employment (LTE) positions are temporary in nature. Limited Term Employees do not possess rights to permanent civil service positions, and occupying an LTE position does not lead to the attainment of permanent status. LTEs are not covered by a collective bargaining agreement and are ineligible to transfer into permanent vacancies. However, LTEs may apply for vacant permanent positions of interest.

Limited Term Employees are restricted to working less than 1,044 hours within 26 consecutive biweekly payroll periods.

If you are employed for more than 30 days you will have an email account opened for you and will be granted computer access. Email is used to communicate important information and campus events.

Most LTE appointments do not include benefits such as participation in a retirement system, health or life insurance or income continuation insurance. Contact the Benefits Office for more information.
