Staff Rehire Policy

This policy provides for the terms and benefits afforded to employees rehired into regular full- or part-time positions after a break in service.

Definitions:


Employee
All regular and limited term full-time faculty and staff. Part time and temporary staff are not included.

Continuous Service
Includes leave time or other time off taken for any purpose recognized under University policy or applicable law, as well as any break in service recognized as continuous service under University policy or applicable law.

 

Policy Statement:


Employees Rehired into a Regular Full- or Part-Time Position
Former employees who have separated from the University and are rehired within sixty days of the effective date of separation will be reinstated with their hire date and benefits to which they are entitled in their new position, based on the original date of hire.

Former employees who have separated from the University and are rehired between sixty days and twelve months of the effective date of separation will have their prior service restored, including for purposes of benefit eligibility, unless otherwise addressed or prohibited in another university policy or plan. The employee’s break in service will not be counted towards the employee’s time of continuous service with the university.

Employees rehired into faculty roles are subject to the provisions relevant to that role as outlined in the Faculty Handbook regarding issues of voting status, tenure eligibility, etc.

 

Employees Rehired into a Temporary or Adjunct Position
Faculty and staff must have a six-month break in service after separating from the university before returning in a temporary or adjunct position. Any exception must be approved by the EVP & COO and the cost of the exception borne by the requesting Division or School.
