As the Court of Appeals in Haase v. San Diego Community College District (1980) aptly observed:
"Entry into the Education Code is painful."
The complex web of laws that is the Education Code can be daunting to decipher. The provisions relating to the employment of part-time, temporary faculty to meet a community college district's ongoing instructional and non-instructional needs, and employment and classification of non-academic community college district employees specifically exempt from the classified service, are no exception. This workbook focuses on simplifying and de-mystifying the provisions regarding hiring adjunct faculty and provides guidance to community college districts regarding when and why districts can hire temporary non-academic employees.
The workbook addresses important questions pertaining to the employment of adjunct faculty members such as:
- How often can they be employed?
- Under what circumstances do they acquire tenure?
- How is their tenure calculated?
- How many hours a week can they work?
- How can they be utilized flexibly but without exploitation?
- Should they be required to maintain office hours?
- Can they accrue vacation?
- Can they be employed in different disciplines?
- Can they be employed in categorically funded programs?
Likewise, the workbook addresses important questions pertaining to the employment of non-academic community college district employees and those relating to positions specifically exempt from classification such as:
- Why go outside the classified service?
- When can you go outside the classified service?
- When can a community college district employ personal service contracts?
- Under what circumstances can an exempt employee become a classified employee?
