The employee’s break in service will not be counted towards the employee’s time of continuous service with NYU-NY.

“Reinstated” or "Reinstatement" means that a former NYU-NY employee’s original hire date with NYU-NY is restored upon rehire into a covered position at NYU-NY as if there had been no break in service, including for purposes of eligibility for benefits, unless otherwise provided herein or other NYU policy or plan.

OTHER UNIVERSITY POLICIES


Please take note that this Policy does not supersede any other NYU policies or plans with specific provisions on reinstatement or prior service credit. Where provisions on reinstatement or prior service credit in any other NYU policy or plan conflict with the definition of Reinstatement or Prior Service Credit under this Policy, the provisions in the other NYU policy or plan will govern. For instance, retirement plan or retiree medical plan eligibility is based solely on the provisions of the applicable plan rather than this Policy.

RESPONSIBILITIES


The HR Officer, Director HR or HR Business Partner must initiate any requests for Reinstatement and Prior Service Credit or direct any questions under this Policy to the University Human Resources’ Assistant Vice President – Employee Relations.
