Attention supervisors: Changes ahead for temporary employees

Beginning Nov. 1, Advance Services Inc., a temporary agency in Ames, will be responsible for hiring Iowa State's temporary hourly merit (non-student) employees.

University human resources (UHR) prompted the change to efficiently manage the use of temporary staff. As a result of new language in the collective bargaining agreement between AFSCME and the state of Iowa as well as compliance with the Regents Merit System Rules, only temporary employees hired for positions covered by the AFSCME collective bargaining agreement are impacted by this change.

Employees designated as non-AFSCME, including P&S temporary, supervisory or confidential merit, seasonal, or employees classified as helpers or clerical helpers, are not affected. For those employees and for student workers, supervisors should continue to contact UHR.

More information for supervisors

UHR has created a detailed FAQ (PDF) for ISU supervisors on its website, which covers everything from parking passes to payroll. In addition, the site contains a price guide (PDF) for each position as well as a temporary employee request form (PDF). For additional information, supervisors should contact UHR at 4-3753, your college or unit's human resources liaison or Michele Morales, 233-4333, at Advance Services Inc.
