Policy

Full Time Employment

Employees who are authorized to work thirty (30) hours or more within a work week are considered full time employees. Full time employees are entitled to all employee benefits in proportion to their authorized work week.

All employees are covered by Workers’ Compensation Insurance and Social Security.

Part Time Employment

Employees who are authorized to work less than thirty (30) hours in a work week are considered part time employees. Part time employees are entitled to holiday pay and sick leave in accordance with the university holiday and sick leave policies. Accrual rates will be prorated based upon the actual hours paid in the pay period.

All employees are covered by Workers’ Compensation Insurance and Social Security.

Temporary Employees - Full Time or Part Time

Employees hired on a temporary basis are hired with a planned limit of six (6) months, or less, of employment. If a temporary employee later becomes a regular employee, time served as a temporary employee will not count towards service with the university. Temporary employees are only entitled to statutory benefits.

Any employee that has not worked within a period of one year will be classified as inactive by Florida Tech, unless they are on an approved leave of absence.
