What happens when a TSS associate’s appointment ends?
On the appointment end date, we will submit a separation notice to the Employment Database Team. Once the separation is active in the Employment Database, their AD account, Mednet email and employee ID# will deactivate.
We do not process extensions for staff whose appointments are ending. Therefore, if you would like to bring on your associate into a career position, we strongly advise moving forward with this process a few months before their end date.
Are TSS associates eligible for benefits?
Floater. A Floater is a Group A Appointment Type (Code 8) that is eligible for health and welfare benefits. However, Floaters are not eligible for membership in the UC Retirement Plan, nor are hours in Floater appointments counted toward the accumulation of 1,000 hours in a 12- month period for UCRP/Full Benefits eligibility. Floaters are entitled to eligibility for Mid-level or Core benefits based on the percentage and duration of their appointment. If they are appointed at 100% time for 3 months or more, or at least 50% time for 12 months, they should be provided with Mid-level benefits. Floaters who are appointed at least 43.75% time for any duration are eligible for Core benefits
For more information about CORE benefits, please see: http://ucnet.universityofcalifornia.edu/compensation-and-benefits/health- plans/medical/core.html.

Are TSS associates eligible for vacation, sick, and holiday time?
On average, our TSS associates accrue the following amount of vacation and sick leave time provided they are on assignment/pay status before each accrual date:
Vacation/PTO – 12.320 hours
Sick/ESL – 4.310 hours
To use vacation/PTO
The associate must request and clear it with the supervisor of their assigned department. Once approved, they may use accrued vacation/PTO. They will note the use of this time accordingly on their timesheet.
To use sick/ESL
The associate must inform the supervisor of the department where they are assigned if they will be out sick, or if need to go home because they have fallen ill.
Please note, however, that when recording sick time, per UC policy, the first consecutive 16 hours of absence (or sick time, in this case), are deducted from the vacation/PTO bank. It is ONLY from the third consecutive day onwards of being out sick, that the time off is actually deducted from the sick leave accrual bank. From the third consecutive day onwards of being out sick, please enter “Extended Sick Leave” accordingly on the timesheet. Associates will also need to provide documentation of extended sick leave, i.e. a doctor’s note, to both the Coordinator, and the supervisor of the assigned department.
