Reinstatement of Benefits

Occasionally the University has the opportunity to rehire individuals who have formerly worked with the University. The Office of Human Resource Management may restore benefits when a full-time, exempt or non-exempt employee is reinstated in a full-time exempt or non-exempt under specific conditions.

Procedure:

This procedure applies to exempt or non-exempt employees that are reinstated in a full-time exempt or non-exempt position. In order for the procedure, the employee must meet the following two conditions.
