Contract employees:

Contract employees are regularly scheduled to work less than an annualized .50 FTE.  Contract employee positions typically include instructors and coaches or others who teach in a similar capacity and may be reappointed more than once.

Contract employees must sign a standard agreement with Reed College which specifies the terms and conditions of the appointment, including the specific duration (beginning and ending date) of the appointment. 

Contract employee forms are available from the Human Resources Office.  Supervisors must complete a Personnel Action Form and attach a copy of the signed contract in order to appoint a contract employee.  Contract employees will be required to complete I-9, W-4, and other appropriate paperwork upon appointment.

Contract employees are not eligible for benefits except those defined in the benefit section of the policy manual or as required by law.
