The university disfavors the practice of re-hiring any retired employee to the same or similar position in which that individual was previously employed. However, such re-hiring may be permitted if one of the following exceptional circumstances demonstrates that the re-hire is:
Limited in time to no more than twelve (12) months for the purpose of allowing an adequate search process to identify and hire a replacement.
In response to a bona fide emergency or exigency requiring the unique skills and expertise of the employee and limited in time to the duration of the emergency situation.
Due to a lack of qualified applicants capable of performing the assigned duties of the position after a diligent search process has been undertaken.
To avoid an adverse impact upon an externally funded research project, center or engagement.
