HR - Continuity Status Overview

This document contains a list of the Continuity code values and their definitions. In addition, this job aid indicates whether the Expected Job End Date field is required, optional or not allowed based on the Continuity of the job.

General Description

Continuity: Section 36.09(1)(e) Wis. Stats., directs the Board of Regents to fix the "term of office" for officers, faculty, academic staff and other employees of the UW System. Continuity, in conjunction with the Appointment Type, captures this information about the expected duration for jobs. Continuity will be a factor in determining the benefits program eligibility, so its accuracy is critical.

When creating a Position, a Continuity value must be selected. 

Continuity Table

Note: Student Help employee class has a continuity of NONE.

Under the column titled Expected Job End Date, if "Not Allowed" leave the field blank on job data, if "Required" a date must be entered, and if "Optional" you may leave blank or add a date.  If a date is entered, the effective date of the termination will always be the Expected Job End Date plus one day.
