Casual Employment Hiring Process (Reformatted and annotated version of LHR document)

1. The Supervisor initiates the request for a casual candidate by forwarding the job description (listing essential functions of the position) and completing the requisition form , which can be linked to online.

2. The Supervisor must get approval from the department head, and the department head must forward the request to the appropriate AUL who then forwards all documents with approval to the HR Coordinator.

3. The Human Resources Coordinator reviews description, and assigns level and rate.

4. The Human Resources Coordinator will check to determine whether there are layoff candidates in the Interim Employment Pool (IEP) (see Local 34 Contract article XVII 4f). Qualified candidates in the IEP will be referred to departments. Note: IEP candidates are considered Yale Employees and for causal/temporary positions reference checks are not permitted.

5. Departments hiring an IEP employee for a casual assignment do pay fringe on the actual monies they pay the employee.

6. If there are no candidates from the IEP, the Human Resource Coordinator will review the file of available candidates who will have been through a screening interview. Qualified applicants will then be referred to the hiring supervisor for an interview.

7. Human Resources will set up interviews between the candidates and supervisors for each casual position.

8. The Supervisor interviews candidate(s) and then checks references.
