Non-Student Hourly OPS Policy now available
Jodi Gentry, Vice President for Human Resources
A University of Florida policy that defines non-student hourly OPS employment is now available at https://hr.ufl.edu/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Non-student-hourly-OPS-policy.pdf and takes effect on August 16, 2018.
The policy provides parameters on the appropriate use of non-student hourly OPS employees on a term or as‐needed basis. It also includes more descriptive OPS job codes, which follow, and introduces a threshold for total hours worked for #1-4 below:
1. OPS Time-Limited
2. OPS Special Risk
3. OPS Sponsored Projects Non-Clerical
4. OPS Sponsored Projects Clerical
5. OPS Health Care
6. OPS Contract Services
7. OPS Special Project
8. OPS Seasonal
9. OPS As-Needed
10. OPS Secondary
Areas with employees who will be at the threshold (4,176 hours) as of August 16 should communicate their specific plans to address long-standing OPS employment with Classification and Compensation at email@example.com as soon as possible. There is no expectation that employment must end on August 16; however, reasonable and specific plans for impacted OPS jobs must be underway by that date.
Questions about this policy may be directed to your college/department human resources liaison or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
