Eligibility for Re-employment
Generally, a former employee is considered Eligible for Rehire for positions at Lumen. There are instances however, when a former employee should not be considered for certain positions, or should not be considered for any position. For example, an employee is not eligible for rehire if he/she violated the Code of Conduct, regardless of whether he/she was involuntarily terminated as a result or resigned during an investigation associated with a violation of the Code of Conduct.
Hiring managers have the primary responsibility for determining a former employees rehire eligibility by:
- obtaining references from the applicant’s previous Lumen supervisors
- reviewing any available work records and information regarding the former employee, as provided by previous management and HR
- reviewing guidance provided in the Managers Toolkit, found on HRconnect
Former employees who have voluntarily taken a distribution from the pension or 401(k) plans will not be eligible to be considered for reemployment for six months following their last day worked.
