Contingent II is a non-regular status of employment for nonexempt or exempt staff positions in the USM. Employees have a written agreement/contract with the terms and conditions of employment. Contingent II status was previously referred to as “contractual”.
Contingent II employees are required to be hired through a competitive recruitment and selection process. You may NOT convert a Contingent I employee to a Contingent II status. For more information on the policy and definitions please see the Board of Regents Policy VII-1.40 on Contingent Status Employment for Nonexempt and Exempt Staff Employees.
The job posting template will reflect the Contingent II status of the position. The status and meaning should be explained to candidates during the interview process and again at the informal offer stage. After a selection has been made and the offer card has been approved, you will need to complete a Personal Services Contract and Addendum.
