The University recognizes that former employees who apply for and accept re-employment at Tufts brings with them knowledge of the institution, its systems and procedures which is an advantage to the rehired employee and department for which they are hired. Below are the policies for rehire at Tufts.
Employees who leave the University in good standing are eligible for rehire. Past performance will be considered when a former employee applies for rehire.
If you are rehired within one (1) year of your departure date, you will retain your original hire date for the purpose of vacation accrual, retirement vesting, and other seniority based considerations except reduction in force benefits. For all other benefits plans, you will have to contact the Human Resources Benefits Office for specific policy details.
A rehired employee will still be subject to a trial period in his or her new position and no sick, vacation, or personal days from prior employment at the University will be reinstated.
Staff: any benefits-eligible employee who has standard hours of 17.5 hours/week or more and is not otherwise covered by a collective bargaining agreement.
