It is the employee’s responsibility to incur the cost of any testing required for the position (approx. $70), and there will be no reimbursement for this expense. Failure to successfully complete any portion of the hiring process will invalidate any conditional job offer received. Falsification of, or omission on, any SOCCCD pre-employment paperwork may result in withdrawal of any conditional job offer or termination of employment.

Employment will be on an “if and as needed” basis, as determined by the District. NBU employment is at-will, and either party may terminate this working relationship at anytime. Neither party shall be required to provide any reason for the separation. NBU employees shall not have reemployment rights or recourse to petition to be reinstated.

160 day restriction: NBU employees will not work more than 160 days (in any combination of NBU positions) no matter how many hours per day they work. It is the employee’s responsibility to monitor and track the amount of days that they work to ensure they do not exceed the 160 day limit. It is the employee’s responsibility to notify their supervisor and Human Resources immediately if they are approaching the 160 day limit. NBU positions are not part of the Classified service and that by working less than 160 days of a college year, NBU employees are not entitled to any employment.

It is the employee’s responsibility to inform their supervisor of their CalPERS status for current and future assignments.
