No. Your seniority date remains the same as it was before you were laid off if you are rehired within two years of your layoff. (WAC 357-46-058) You would have been paid out all of your vacation leave in a lump sum when you were separated due to layoff per WAC 357-31-225. Upon re-hire off of a layoff register you will start your vacation accrual rate (number of hours earned per month) at the rate given in WAC 357-31. Your sick leave balance remains available to you for up to five years. If you are re-hired to state service within the five-year timeframe you will regain those sick leave hours.
