Seniority/Continuous Service Date
Your seniority/continuous service date is the date that you began state/UWS employment, adjusted for any breaks in service. This is the date that determines how many supplemental sick leave credits you may be eligible to receive at termination.
Classified employees may only include time worked in WRS-covered positions that are eligible to earn sick leave (time worked in an LTE position does not count towards the continuous service date). Classified employees may count time worked in a project position only if the employee had permanent status while working in a project position.
Unclassified employees may only include time worked in positions that are covered by the WRS. Time worked in graduate assistant, student assistant, employee-in-training and short-term academic staff positions not covered by the WRS do not count towards the continuous service date.
