PEBB benefits: Recurring seasonal appointments

Summer is almost upon us, bringing with it the annual influx of seasonally hired non-student temporary employees (NSTE). As a reminder, NSTE’s hired by WSU on a recurring seasonal basis may be eligible for PEBB employer-paid benefits.

HRS monitors NSTE appointments to identify potentially benefit-eligible individuals who work on a seasonal basis, and will contact departments if it appears someone has met the eligibility criterion.  We will also utilize information provided via TEMPs. In the event a department knows they will be rehiring a NSTE this year who also worked for them last spring/summer, please notify HRS.

A Frequently Asked Questions website is available at the HRS website. This site will also address how WSU views hourly employees who may be students during a portion of the year, and whether the PEBB seasonal benefits may be applicable to them.

Notification and questions can be directed to HRS at (509)335-4521 or hrs@wsu.edu. If you would like to discuss seasonal benefits eligibility, please let us know!

The Notices and Announcements section is provided as a service to the WSU community for sharing events such as lectures, trainings, and other highly transactional types of information related to the university experience. Accuracy of the information presented is the responsibility of those who submitted it. The self-uploaded posts are reviewed for compliance with state statutes and ethics guidelines but are not edited by the News and Media Relations unit for spelling, grammar or clarity.
