Who is a new hire/rehire?A new hire is an employee hired by the University for the first time and who has never held an appointment at UT Brownsville. A new hire must report to Human Resources on or before their first day of employment to complete a new employee packet.
A rehire is a past employee that UT Brownsville is hiring again e.g. someone who separated from service and is returning to UT Brownsville employment. A rehire with a separation date of 1 year or longer must report to Human Resources on or before their first day of employment to complete a new employee packet. Please note: A temporary employee cannot work for more than 17 weeks or 129 days in a fiscal year.
Who is Benefits Eligible?Benefits Eligibility is mandated by the Texas State Legislature. An employee who is hired to work at least 20 hours per week and to continue in the employment for a term of at least 4 1/2 months is considered benefits eligible.
Employees may move from one classification of employment to another during the fiscal year. When this occurs, all employment classifications during the fiscal year should be reviewed and considered to determine if an employee has become benefits eligible due to the various classifications of employment.
* Based on an institutional decision, a half timer can only work 25 or 30 hours a week.
