CU’s rehired retirees to lose leave July 1

If you manage CU retirees who have returned to work as staff members, remind them they will forfeit any accrued sick leave they do not use by Monday, June 30. While these employees also will forfeit their right to unused vacation leave starting July 1, CU will pay out those vacation balances.

The change is a result of CU's "Hiring Working Retirees into Staff Positions" policy, which better enforces long-standing rules regarding maximum work limits and benefits eligibility for CU retirees who rejoin the university as staff members.
