Excerpt from May 2014 Clarion article on timely adjunct pay:
Failure to pay adjunct faculty on time at the start of a semester has often been a problem at CUNY colleges. CUNY has instructed college administrations to make “every effort...to ensure that adjunct faculty are paid on time,” and has circulated a list of “best practices” to ensure timely adjunct paychecks. The list includes a measure that had been urged by the PSC: designating a specific staff member to track adjunct appointments “before and during the beginning of a semester.” Read more in this May 2014 Clarion article.
