The AFT College Staff Guild and the Los Angeles Community College District agreed in January that classified employees who accept adjunct teaching assignments do not need to reduce their classified hours if the assignment is outside regularly scheduled hours.

The memorandum of understanding also ensures that Local 1521A members who teach during their normal work hours will not have to reduce their classified assignments if they adjust their schedule with their supervisor to work those hours at straight time. Compensation for adjunct assignment under this agreement complies with federal overtime requirements.

The district will make every effort to offer adjunct assignments outside a classified employee’s regular work hours. If a Staff Guild member cannot teach for two consecutive semesters because the assignment falls within the regular classified work schedule, the employee may appeal to the college vice president or vice chancellor.
