What is Right of First Refusal (RoFR)?


Effective Fall 2019, a Sessional Lecturer holds a Right of First Refusal (RoFR; i.e., for a particular course) should the course be offered as a SL work assignment in one of the following six (6) semesters. 

Sessionals will be invited to exercise their Right of First Refusal by way of the online hiring system. Except in extenuating circumstances, failure to accept the invitation within the timeframe provided will be deemed as a refusal to exercise their Right of First Refusal.

Postings will indicate when a "Sessional Lecturer Currently Holds a Right of First Refusal for this Course", and where applicable, the "Number of Assignments that Carry the Right of First Refusal".  Special circumstances apply for ROFR for Applied Music courses in the School of Fine Art and Music. 

Qualified applicants are encouraged to apply to work assignments regardless of whether they carry the RoFR.
