The USG Business Procedures Manual Section 5.3.3 addresses Joint Staffing. Joint Staffing is the practice of employing the same individual by two or more USG institutions during the same period of time.
Any department/unit head that plans to utilize an individual that is also working at another USG institution must ensure that an Employee Compensation Agreement Form is completed and properly approved prior to the individual beginning work for Middle Georgia State University (MGA). The MGA president must approve each agreement whether MGA is the requesting or the providing institution.
It is essential that the Office of Human Resources is aware of any joint staffing arrangements to ensure that applicable regulations are addressed and that the individual is properly coded in the HR system. Therefore, a copy of the completed Employee Compensation Agreement Form should be provided to the Office of Human Resources.
The Office of Human Resources is responsible for the appropriate invoicing of the requesting institution for instances when MGA is the providing institution.
The Office of Human Resources is responsible for the appropriate payment to the providing institution for instances when MGA is the requesting institution.
