Applicants who separate from an OUS institution in good standing or employees who voluntarily demote are granted re-employment rights. Re-employment rights continue for two years from the date of separation.
Employees' adjusted service date may be updated to reflect prior service with OUS, which may affect the vacation accrual rate. If employees have successfully completed initial trial service, they will not repeat initial trial service.
HR staff will calculate the appropriate trial service eligibility, anniversary date, and sick leave balance for employees re-hired within two years of termination from an OUS institution.
Limited duration appointments are made when employees are needed for special projects of uncertain or limited duration, that are subject to the continuation of a grant, contract, award, or legislative funding.
