36.5 A faculty unit employee shall be limited in CSU employment to the equivalent of one (1) full-time position in his/her primary or normal employment. An “overage” of up to twenty five percent (25%) of a full-time position shall be allowed if the overage employment:

(a) consists of employment of a substantially different nature from his/her primary or normal employment;

(b) is funded from non-general fund sources;

(c) is the result of the accrual of part-time employment on more than one (1) campus; or

(d) is necessary to meet a temporary faculty employee’s entitlement to full-time work, or to offer work to a part-time temporary faculty employee up to full time under provision 12.29 (a) (8) or (b) (9).

However, in no case shall a faculty unit employee’s entitlement to subsequent employment at a campus exceed full-time in any academic term.
