[Amended 8-26-2003 by Ord. No. 1180]
Part-time employees who are employed by the City on or after the effective date of this article, shall be eligible for membership in the City of Roseville Employees' Retirement System, provided an application requesting membership is submitted to the retirement system. Membership shall be effective on the first day of the month following the retirement system's receipt of the application.
Upon membership in the retirement system, a part-time employee will be required to make employee contributions as provided by the retirement system. Part-time employees who are members of the retirement system will be credited with one day of service credit for each day worked after becoming members of the retirement system.
Full-time and part-time employees who are employed by the City on the effective date of this article, may be eligible to purchase service credit for periods of time during which they were part-time employees prior to membership in the retirement system, provided the individual is a member of the retirement system, files a written application with the retirement system within six months of the effective date of this article, requesting part-time employment service credit; and contributes to the retirement system an amount equal to the employee contributions, plus interest, which would have been credited had the individual been a member of the retirement system during the period of time requested. Payment for such service credit shall be made in one lump sum and shall be made within six months of the effective date of this article. Part-time service shall be credited as one day of service for each day of work. Part-time service which occurred prior to a five-year break in service will not be eligible for purchase. Failure to comply with the foregoing requirements will result in the individual being ineligible for service credit for past part-time service. Only full-time employees who are employed by the City may have service credit recognized under the Reciprocal Retirement Act.
[Amended 5-11-2010 by Ord. No. 1236]
In the event a member is credited for service as a part-time employee and a full-time employee, the member's pension benefits shall be separately determined for his or her part-time service and for his or her full-time service, based upon the benefits, terms and conditions in effect at the time the individual transferred employment between part-time and full-time positions.
Former employees with past part-time service shall not be eligible for nor shall they receive, service credit for prior part-time service.
For a member who is a part-time employee, as provided in this article, for any portion of a calendar year, service credit in a calendar year shall be determined as a day worked equals a day's service credit. In the event a member has credited service in both part-time and full-time positions, the member's pension shall be separately determined for his or her part-time service and his or her full-time service.
