Volume 7 Faculty Affairs
Chapter 7 Policy on Faculty Employment Beyond Retirement
Responsible Office: Faculty Affairs
Originally issued: unknown
Revised: April 2002, BOR Minutes
This policy describes the conditions under which a faculty member who has retired from the University System of Georgia and is receiving retirement benefits may be re-employed by the University System. A retired faculty member may be rehired for less than 50% work commitment, with less than 50% of the annual benefit-base salary that was earned at the time of retirement. In all circumstances, rehiring of a retired faculty member must be approved by the Board of Regents.
Reason For Policy
Georgia Health Sciences University and the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia recognize that gaps in the Corps of Instruction may occur with the retirement of certain faculty. These may best be filled by temporarily rehiring retired faculty members. However, a conflict occurs when a faculty is receiving both retirement benefits and salary from the University System. This policy describes the conditions under which retired faculty may be rehired by the University System of Georgia.
Entities Affected By This Policy
All faculty at Georgia Health Sciences University are covered by this policy.
Who Should Read This Policy
All faculty at Georgia Health Sciences University should be aware of this policy.
