The Unclassified Employee

An individual without fully affiliated academic rank, appointed to a position outside the classified service involving professional, administrative, or educational duties, is an unclassified employee according to Ohio civil service law. An unclassified staff member may be employed either full-time or part-time. The unclassified employee is considered a regular employee when he or she enters into continuing employment with the university to work on either a full-time or part-time basis for an indefinite period. A special contract employee is one who is employed to perform duties or assignments for a specific period of time, usually one year or less. An unclassified employee’s entitlement to and participation in benefits is governed in part by these classifications.

As a member of the unclassified staff you play a vital role in the operation of the university.
