Non-Benefits Eligible Employment
Occasional Employee Processing
An Occasional Worker is an employee who works sporadically, no more than 80 consecutive hours per special event or project. Since Occasional workers do not work on a regular basis, these positions do not accrue state service.
A Criminal Background Check (CBC) is required BEFORE an individual can start work. Go to the UTSA CBC web page for instructions on the CBC process.
The forms that are required to process an Occasional employee are available in a downloadable packet or can be accessed individually.
Complete these forms and return them to your department administrative staff or Human Resources within 3 business days from date of hire.
To access the packet: click on the Employment Packet link below.
