IP 1.17 Transition Contracts

An employee who wishes to work after retirement under the current PERA rules may submit their notice of retirement and request for a transition contract to the Human Resource office no later than 45 days before the end of their current appointment and should copy their supervisor and Vice President.  Acceptance of the transitional contract will be at the discretion of the appointing authority.  The college prefers earlier notification if possible, either late in the fall semester or early in the spring semester.  Transition contact details are as follows:  The employee will remain at their current salary for the transition year (no raise). Their duties and responsibilities will not change unless agreed to by all parties.  Faculty will be able to earn overload.  The employee will be allowed three sick days (24 hours) and two personal leave days (16 hours).  Leave beyond those limits must be taken as “leave without pay”.  The employee will not be required to complete their annual performance evaluation if their transition contract is approved since they will not be eligible for a raise.  Contact the Human Resource office for more information.
