Procedure 24 – Per Diem Positions
Per Diem positions are used to complement career and limited positions when necessary to maintain staffing levels for temporary and emergency periods, as determined by the Organization Head or designee. Refer to UC-PPSM 3 (Types of Appointment) and UC-PPSM 24 (Per Diem Positions), Section A.
Authority to establish per diem positions is delegated to the Organization Head or designee. Authorized individuals are responsible for insuring that organizational entities under their jurisdiction using per diem appointments do so in accordance with the policies and provisions specified in UC-PPSM 24 (Per Diem Positions).

E. Personnel Policies
Per Diem employees are not subject to the UC Personnel Policies for Staff Members except as noted in UC-PPSM 24 (Per Diem Positions), Section E, regardless of the duration and percentage of time worked. Although some method of recording performance evaluation information may be required for compliance with external agencies, a formal performance appraisal is not otherwise appropriate. Per diem employees work on an as-needed basis and therefore should not be given any assurances of continued employment, nor future scheduling guarantees based upon satisfactory performance.
An individual may serve in a per diem position for a maximum of 1,000 hours per rolling year, with appointments to be reviewed by the Organization Head or designee every two years.
Classification and Pay — Per diem appointments may be made to all existing non-represented Professional and Support Staff (PSS) and Management Senior Professional (MSP) titles applicable to UCLA as contained in the Non-Academic Title and Pay Plan.
"By Agreement" rates of pay will be established by CHR for all per diem classes, will be based upon the pay ranges of the parallel classes, and will be incorporated into the Non-Academic Title and Pay Plan.
Per Diem appointments do not require job descriptions and are not subject to classification review or open recruitment policies.
Per diem employees may be released without cause.
