AB 3374 – Clarifies Temporary Employee Exception For Nursing Faculty
The Education Code classifies any person employed to teach adult or community college classes for not more than 67% of the hours per week considered a full-time assignment for regular employees having comparable duties, as a temporary employee. Community colleges may not employ these employees for more than two semesters or three quarters in any three consecutive academic years. Prior to AB 3374, community college districts could hire full-time or part-time clinical nursing faculty as temporary employees for up to four semesters or six quarters.
AB 3374 clarifies the requirement to employ clinical nursing faculty as temporary employees. Community college districts may employ full-time or part-time nursing faculty as temporary employees for only up to four semesters or six quarters within any period of three consecutive years. Previously, the law did not contain the limitation of “within any period of three consecutive years.”
AB 3374 also makes technical changes to Education Code Section 87786, revising “his or her” to “their” or “the employee.”
(AB 3374 amends Sections 66022.5, 87482, 87786, 88810, 94923 of the Education Code.)
