Fixed term positions may end prior to their scheduled ending date if funding ceases or the work is complete. In addition, fixed term positions may continue beyond their scheduled ending date if funding is renewed or extended. Per PMR 48.2, fixed-term employees are not subject to Reduction in Force rights at the completion of the term.
