Generally, the University does not support the rehiring of retired administrative and classified employees into full-time or part-time permanent benefits-eligible positions. The exception is the rehire of a retiree who is critical to the University's ability to achieve its mission.


Employees who may be rehired should first consult the information about re-employment that is provided by their retirement system, checking particularly for possible impact on retiree health care benefits. The following links provide starting points appropriate for the majority of Ohio University retirees:

If a Planning Unit Head believes that the rehiring of an Ohio University retiree is critical to achieving the University's mission, the Planning Unit Head may take such rehire request to the Chief Human Resource Officer. If the Chief Human Resource Officer concurs with the request, he or she will send the request to the President. The President will make the final hiring decision and, thereafter, report to the Board of Trustees any rehires of retirees.
