Code No.: 402.5
RE-EMPLOYMENT OF PREVIOUSLY EMPLOYED FULL-TIME STAFF MEMBER
Purpose: To establish guidelines in the re-hiring of staff who have left full-time employment by termination, retirement or resignation.
Policy: The Anamosa Community School District in most circumstances will not re-hire an employee in either a substitute capacity or a part-time capacity for a minimum of 26 weeks once full-time employment is terminated. The termination may be the result of resignation,
termination, or retirement.
The Affordable Care Act currently requires employees who are re-hired within 26 weeks of terminating employment to be treated as if employment had not been terminated. Therefore, if the employee had previously been eligible for district-paid health insurance, the District must pay the same district share of the employee’s insurance through the end of the stability period.
As the District wishes to mitigate health insurance costs for non-full-time employees and whereas the District wishes to minimize exposure due to adverse selection, employees who are no longer employed in a full-time capacity must wait at least 26 weeks before returning to any substitute or part-time position with the Anamosa Community School District.
