Hourly/Intermittent Employee Benefits

You are here

Benefits

Most employees hired with an intermittent hourly appointment are not eligible for medical, dental, and vision insurance.  However, there may be other voluntary benefits plans that these employees qualify for participation in. 

Payday

Payday is once each month, usually on the 15th of the month. Payroll warrants are normally released at 10:00 A.M. at the Cashier's Window. If the 15th falls on Saturday, payday is the preceding Friday. If it falls on Sunday, payday is the following Monday.

Retirement Plan

Participation in a Retirement Plan is mandatory for all employees.

The PST Retirement plan covers part-time, seasonal, and temporary/intermittent employees in all bargaining units and non-represented employees who are not eligible for membership in the California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS). The plan is administered by the California Department of Human Resources (CalHR), Savings Plus Program (457). The employee's contribution is 7.5% of the gross monthly salary. Eligible employees may request a detailed brochure from Human Resources Department.

Membership in the Public Employees' Retirement System (PERS) is mandatory (replacing the PST plan) when an employee has worked 1,000 hours or more within one Fiscal Year (7/1-6/30). Contact Human Resources Department for more information.

Sick Leave

Sick Leave is accrued on a cumulative basis. Hourly/Intermittent employees must work 160 hours to accumulate one day (8 hours) of sick leave. Time worked each pay period is accumulated toward the next accrual. Contact the Payroll Department for more information.

Vacation Leave

Vacation Leave is accrued on a cumulative basis. Hourly/Intermittent employees must work 160 hours to accumulate 6 2/3 hours of vacation. Time worked each pay period is accumulated toward the next accrual. Employees with prior state service may be eligible to accumulate at a higher rate. Contact the Payroll Department for more information.
