Additional Employment

Additional employment shall refer to any employment compensated by CSU, funded by the general fund or non-general funds including CSU auxiliaries, that is in addition to the primary or normal employment of a faculty unit employee. 

A faculty unit employee shall be limited in CSU employment to the equivalent of one (1) full-time position in their primary or normal employment.  An “overage” of up to twenty five percent (25%)  of a full-time position shall be allowed if the overage employment: (a) consists of employment of a substantially different nature from their primary or normal employment; (b) is funded from non-general fund sources; (c) is the result of the accrual of parttime employment on more than one (1) campus; or (d) is necessary to meet a temporary faculty employee’s entitlement to full-time work, or to offer work to a part-time temporary faculty employee up to full time under provision 12.29 (a) (8) or (b) (9).  However, in no case shall a faculty unit employee’s entitlement to subsequent employment at a campus exceed full-time in any academic term.

Under the CBA, all 12-month faculty are limited to 125% at any point in time. For academic year faculty: “The applicable time period for ten (10) month or academic year faculty unit employees shall be the academic year at semester/quarter campuses …, exclusive of time periods between academic years, time periods between academic terms, and the vacation periods of a faculty unit employee.  For academic year or ten (10) month faculty unit employees, Additional Employment, and overload limits (125%) shall be calculated and applied independently during summer periods.” CSUSM generally limits academic year faculty to 125% per semester but will allow very limited exceptions for academic year averaging when necessary to issue appointments, such as for a 4 WTU Extended Learning course. Such exceptions must be vetted by the Appropriate Administrator issuing the Additional Employment appointment and the faculty member’s home college Associate Dean to ensure the faculty member will not exceed an average of 125% over the course of the academic year.
