Staff Members Covered by the O&R Period

  • All exempt and non-union, non-exempt new hires and transfers*

  • HUCTW staff who are new to Harvard or have any break in service**

* If a person is hired in a temporary or less than half-time position and is later converted into a regular benefited job, of the same role, without an interruption in service, the applicable O & R Period will include prior credit for temporary or less than half-time service in that position. The new staff member would still be required to successfully complete the applicable O & R Period from the prior service credit date.

** If an HUCTW member transfers into another HUCTW position they are not subject to a new O & R Period but they must be in his/her current position for at least six months on the regular payroll and meeting current job standards to be eligible to transfer.
