Frequently Asked Questions

TRAVEL AND REIMBURSEMENTS

OSU will reimburse the mileage between the employee work station and the destination or the mileage between the employee's home and the destination, whichever is less.

HIRING NEW EMPLOYEES

A “summer appointment” is a secondary position for employees whose current contract/position is a 9- or 10- month assignment. Summer appointment positions are most often located in an academic area or University Housing & Dining Services.

If you are interested in creating a summer appointment position, please contact your Business Center’s Human Resources team as early as possible for more information about the process.

PAYCHECKS AND DEDUCTIONS

Contact your supervisor for assistance, or go to OSU’s My Time website and review the User Guide that corresponds to your job type under the Policy Profile/Role Training heading.

If you still need assistance, please contact your Business Center directly or by using the My Time Contact link.  Please include your OSU ID and a detailed message.

JOB TYPES / EVALUATIONS / COLLECTIVE BARGAINING

OSU uses EvalS, an electronically-driven performance evaluation system designed to assist supervisors and employees to complete their annual goal-setting and appraisal tasks for classified and professional faculty employees. Your supervisor will guide you through the process. Managers should contact your Business Center for more information.

All classified employees at OSU are represented by the SEIU/Oregon Public Employees Union (SEIU) and covered by the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Although membership in the union is optional, the collective bargaining agreement requires the University to collect monthly dues or fair-share contributions from the paychecks of classified employees. You can find more information and details about classified employment in the Classified Employee Handbook.
