Are variable-hour employees allowed to work more than 30 hours per week?

Departments, in partnership with their Campus HR, manage their work force and make decisions about when and how much an employee will work. If a variable-hour employee averages more than 30 hours per week over the measurement period, that individual will be offered medical coverage. If an individual is consistently working .75 full-time equivalency (FTE) (30 hours) in any single position and has at least a nine-month appointment, this individual should be considered fully benefit eligible.
