Hiring Staff

First, you will need to determine which hiring classification to use. Note that you will often be limited to a specific classification by the budget approved by the funding agency.

Hourly staff:

  • Work half time (≤ 50%) or less, and for 6 months or less at a time
  • Work intermittently
  • Receive minimal SF State benefits (e.g. Social Security and sick/vacation accrual)
  • Report hours worked (positive pay)
  • Is the more common classification
