Employees who are reinstated into the Hall County Library System will maintain their original anniversary date for those governed by the anniversary date. The policy will be as follows:

  1. Employees who voluntarily leave the library system, but who remain within the Georgia Teacher’s Retirement System, may have the option to transfer earned sick leave accrued with each TRS employer, back to the Hall County Library System. Seniority for annual leave benefits earned with the Hall County Library System at the time of voluntary termination may be reinstated if the employee is re-employed within 12 months of the termination date. Annual leave and sick leave benefits are subject to the accrued leave caps established by the Hall County Library System.
  2. Employees who voluntarily leave the library system and who fail to maintain participation or vestment in the Georgia Teacher’s Retirement System, but return to work within 6 months, shall have the option to retain earned sick leave benefits and have seniority reinstated for annual leave benefits subject to the accrued sick leave caps established by the Hall County Library System.
  3. Employees who are laid off and who fail to maintain participation or vestment in the Georgia Teacher’s Retirement System but return to work for the Hall County Library System within 12 months, shall have the option to retain earned sick leave benefits and have seniority reinstated for annual leave benefits subject to the accrued sick leave caps established by the Hall County Library System.

Verification of earned sick leave benefits from other TRS employers will be required for reinstatement of applicable benefits.
