To provide a consistent and equitable method of recalling to employment former staff employees who were laid off and whose positions have been reinstated.
A restoration of force occurs when a position that was eliminated as the result of a reduction in force is re-established within one year from the date of the reduction.
Each human resources office shall notify and recall any laid-off employee when a restoration of force occurs in the position title, job title, and department of that former employee. Laid-off employees are eligible for recall for one year after the layoff. Should a recall occur within the year, the campus or institute will establish a schedule to recall the affected employees. The recall will be in reverse order of the layoff; the last employees laid off will be the first employees recalled. If a former employee is recalled to work through this process within one year after being laid off, his or her continuous service date will be restored to the date in existence at the time of the layoff.
If an employee rejects an offer of re-employment to the position that he or she held at the time of layoff, he or she will lose all restoration rights. Former employees who have elected retirement in lieu of layoff are not eligible for recall.
