  2. Secondary Position – Any employment assignment other than the Primary Position.

Administrative Rule

  1. Employees may not be simultaneously assigned to more than one benefits eligible position.
  2. Exempt employees holding a Primary Position may be considered for adjunct faculty or hourly instructor positions as long as the Secondary Position and its duties do not conflict with or require adjustment to the customary working hours of the Primary Position.
  3. Non-exempt employees holding a Primary Position may not be employed in a Secondary Position.
  4. Adjunct faculty that do not hold a Primary Position may hold hourly assignments as long as those assignments comply with AR 4.0402.01 Employment of Hourly Personnel.
