    Re-Employment of Former Employees


    Policy Statement

    The University sets requirements for the re-employment of faculty and staff who have retired or resigned from the University, received a separation incentive/phased retirement from the University or when terminated in specific situations.


    Reason for Policy

    To state the rules governing the re-employment of former University faculty (where applicable) and staff employees.


    Who Is Governed by this Policy

    Faculty (where applicable) and Staff


    Policy

    Employees who are no longer employed by the University and who are subsequently rehired under the terms of the employment policies of the University within certain time limits may be given credit for previous service for vacation entitlement (staff only) and the 403(b) Retirement Plan.

    All eligible employees of the University other than those subject to recall under the terms of a collective bargaining agreement are covered.

    An eligible employee who has previously been employed by Adelphi University for a period of one (1) year or more who leaves and is subsequently rehired will receive credit for the time previously worked for the purposes of vacation entitlement provided that the time away from the University immediately prior to the most recent rehire is less than the time worked prior to the termination and the time away is not more than five (5) years prior to the date of rehire.

    The eligibility of any employee who previously worked for Adelphi University who was enrolled in the current 403(b) Retirement Plan to rejoin the plan shall be determined by the provisions of the plan as stated in the plan document.


    Definitions

    This policy does not have definitions associated with it at this time. Upon periodic policy review this area will be evaluated to determine if additional information is needed to supplement the policy.


    Procedures

    1. If a manager is considering hiring a former employee, the Office of Human Resources must approve the rehire prior to the job offer (see Recruitment and Hiring policy).
    2. Once notified of a rehire, Human Resources guidelines will determine whether prior service credit will be approved according to the following:

    In order to calculate credit for vacation entitlement, the actual time previously worked will be added to the re-employment date. For example, a person rehired on June 1, 2017, who is eligible for previous service credit of 18 months, will have service credited back to December 1, 2015.
