Auxiliary appointments are temporary for work that isn't ongoing, such as coverage for employees on leave, seasonal work, and short-term projects.
When a regular employee temporarily assumes other duties, it's called a temporary appointment. Unionized auxiliary employees accrue seniority, are subject to layoff and recall, and may attain regular entitlements under certain conditions.
Auxiliary appointments may be made without a competitive hiring process, but must be based on the principle of merit.
Read about managing auxiliary employees, including auxiliary seniority, layoff and recall, and auxiliary conversion.
