Faculty Rights Tip: Lecturers & Canceled Classes

Here’s a timely tip for Lecturers who may be assigned to a class that gets canceled in the first few weeks of the term (from Article 12.5):

“… If a class is canceled prior to the third class meeting, the temporary employee shall be paid the portion of the term worked prior to the cancellation.

“If a class is canceled after the third class meeting, the temporary employee shall either be paid for the remaining portion of the class assignment or provided an alternate work assignment…”

Once the third class has met, the Lecturer is entitled to be paid for the entire term, even if the class is canceled.
