General Interim Assignment Information

Interim assignments typically occur when the responsibilities of another position, at a higher level, becomes vacant or there is a temporary absence of the incumbent. WVU supervisors may ask or direct a qualified employee to perform the additional duties and responsibilities on an interim basis. Typically, the interim duties are being performed for longer than one month but less than twelve months. Interim duties assigned are temporary and not intended to become a regular assignment.

Only supervisors may ask or direct employees to perform work on an interim basis. An employee who performs duties outside the scope of their current role without prior supervisor authorization may not necessarily be assigned or paid for an interim role.
