Generally, former University employees will be considered for employment in the same manner as other external job candidates. The former employee's employment eligibility at the time of separation determines whether the individual will be considered for reemployment.
Rehired former University employees (with at least two years prior service and less than one year's break in service) will be given an adjusted employment start date. The date will be based on the individual's start date, brought forward for the period of time between termination and reemployment. The adjusted start date determines length of service for leave accrual, tuition benefits, and other personnel actions.
Reemployment may affect Social Security and University retirement benefits. Retirees should contact the Office of Employee Benefits for further information before reemployment with the University.
A former employee will serve a probationary period in the position into which the individual is rehired in accordance with the Probationary Policy.
Termination of Employment
Former employees (rehired under this policy), who again terminate employment, must have completed at least two years of service during the reemployment period to be eligible for prior service credit if rehired in the future.
Former employees who have been laid off may be reemployed as outlined in the University's Layoff Policy. Individuals who terminate for military duty may be reemployed in accordance with the Military Leave Policy.
