Faculty Rights Tip: The 125% Rule

When faculty are hired, they’re often told that there are opportunities for additional employment in the summer or other “special sessions.” For many faculty, this additional employment is a critical part of their income.

Article 36 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement covers the rules for additional work and places a limitation on that “overage” to 25% of a full-time position.

Any additional work in the CSU is limited to 25% of a full-time position, so it is often called the “125% rule.”  

“Outside” employment is separate topic, covered in Article 35, and one we’ll address in another edition of Headlines.
