2.1.5 Re-Employment

Former employees with a good work history are eligible for rehire.  Consideration will be given to the application of a former employee who may wish to return to the University, and such consideration will include a review of that work history.  A rehired former employee is rehired as a new employee with no vested seniority or benefit status. 
When an employee is re-employed by the University after a break in service of thirty (30) days, personal and major medical leave time will be earned as a new employee.  An employee rehired within 30 days of termination is not entitled to 240 hours of terminal leave pay.  If the individual has received this payment and returns to work within the 30-day period, the payment should be refunded to the university in order to continue earning leave at the prior accrual rates.
