SAN MATEO COUNTY EMPLOYEE AND PUBLIC SERVICES DEPARTMENT
DATE: February 5, 2002
TO: Department/Division Directors
FROM: Mary Welch, Employee and Public Services Director
SUBJECT: Restoration of Sick Leave and Advanced Vacation Accruals
On January 29, 2002, the Board of Supervisors adopted a resolution (attached) enabling the County to restore sick leave and grant advanced vacation accruals to former County employees hired on or after January 1, 2002 who are re-hired within two years of separation.
A number of former County employees have expressed an interest in returning to employment with the County. Under the attached program, I would be authorized to restore sick leave and grant advanced vacation accrual rates to former County employees who are re-hired within two years of separation under the following conditions:
- The approval must be recommended by the hiring Department Director.
- The receiving employee must be a former County employee who is being re-hired within two years of separation from the County.
- Sick leave will be restored at the same amount as the employee had when they separated.
- Vacation accrual rates will be set at the same number of years of service as the employee had when they separated. You may want to consider this new program an opportunity to contact employees who have left the County to see if you can entice them to return.
