(Hiring of Current Staff and Wage Employees into a Second University Job)
Dual employment occurs when a hiring official wishes to hire a current University staff or wage employee to perform an additional job assignment (a second job with the University). The University discourages dual employment as a staffing option and therefore strictly controls the approval process. All dual employment assignments must be approved by University Human Resources through U.Va. Temps.
Dual employment assignments are approved when all of the following conditions are met:
- justified as a “business necessity”,
- the duties and responsibilities cannot be assigned to someone else in the department,
- hiring of a new/different wage employee with the required skills is not feasible, and the need is temporary.
University managers requesting dual employment must complete and submit a U.Va. Request for Dual Employment form to U.Va. Temps. If the dual employment involves more than one department/unit the form must be signed by both the requesting department and the employee’s current supervisor. Approved dual employment assignments will be paid at 1.5 times the employee’s current hourly pay rate in addition to the U.Va. Temps’ administrative fee will be assessed.
