Faculty rights tip of the week: Lecturers and canceled classes

This is a new feature for the CFA Headlines. CFA will regularly run a brief “faculty rights tip” or short information piece about the faculty contract.

Lecturers and 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 for class hours taught. 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.
