Classified LTE Appointment Basics
  1. Limited term employees are hired for positions which are temporary. The individual cannot attain permanent status. LTEs are limited to working less than 1044 hours per year from the anniversary date of the appointment.
  2. Multiple LTE appointments may be allowed for individuals if they are for different positions. The following factors must be considered when reviewing multiple LTE appointments for purposes of determining whether or not they are different. All factors will be considered collectively; no one factor will be determinative.
    • At least 50% of the duties of each LTE position must be different from the duties of the other LTE position held
    • A different classification title for each position
    • Different supervisors
    • Different program areas
    • Different geographic locations within the employing unit, e.g., different buildings
  3. Recurring limited term appointments are permissible. However, if the employee reaches the hourly limit but the work of the position continues, the employee must be terminated and a new person appointed. In situations where the hours worked will not reach the 1043-hour limit by the anniversary date, the individual may continue in the same position.
  4. Incorrectly classifying LTE positions in order to continue an employee in a position for more than 1043 hours is a violation of the State statutes and rules.
  5. The most appropriate classification to which permanent positions are assigned should be used for the LTE positions. Typically, LTEs are eligible to be paid up to the minimum of the pay range for the applicable classification to which permanent positions are assigned.
  6. To hire an LTE, the LTE Request/Report Form, a Position Description, the Classified Staff LTE Candidates Log, the HRS Hire a Person (without a position) form, the HRS Funding Data form, and the HRS Work Schedule and Approver form must be completed. If the employee is new to UWM, you must also complete the HRS Add a Person form, the Employee Self Identification form, the Emergency Contact form, the W-4 form, and the Direct Deposit form. All the hiring paperwork must be approved by the appointing authority and sent to Human Resources before the employee starts.
