Continuous Employment Service

A staff member's most recent date of hire is used to determine certain benefits - including paid time off, vacation accrual rates, seniority status, and eligibility for certain programs such as retirement. Staff who leave Duke in good standing and later wish to return to work at Duke are eligible for rehire. Staff who are rehired will not be given credit for prior service for purposes of continuous service date, paid time off (as PTO, vacation, or sick leave), or for other benefits unless they have left Duke within the last 12 months because of a layoff.
