Hiring Full or Part-time staff for projects
Employees at the University are classified as either EPA (Exempt from Personnel Act) and SPA (Subject to Personnel Act). EPA employees include faculty and other professional level individuals. SPA are support personnel. The hiring procedures for each class differs, so work with your unit administrative assistant on all hirings. In general, there are six ways to hire help at ECU. The link below describes them. For most time limited projects, the use of temporary hiring appointments may be the way to go. As long as you have a source of funds, such hirings are much more expedient than permanent positions.
