Re-employment from Indefinite Layoff

I. Summary

Re-employment from indefinite layoff occurs as the result of recall or preference for re-employment rights afforded to an employee who has been laid off indefinitely or whose time has been indefinitely reduced, and for whom preferential rehire applies.
