(a) The time base of an employee who has been approved for participation shall be reduced from full time to:

(1) two-thirds of full time or such percentage as shall average two-thirds of full time during each year of the employee's participation in the workload reduction program; or

(2) one half of full time or such percentage as shall average one half of full time during each year of the employee's participation in the workload reduction program; or

(3) one third of full time or such percentage as shall average one third of full time during each year of the employee's participation in the workload reduction program.

(b) The employee shall fulfill over the course of each year of participation in the program the appropriate pro rata share of his or her employment obligations and service contributions, including teaching, advisement, committee service, or other assignments which would have been required had the employee continued on a full-time basis.

(c) Once an employee is authorized to reduce full-time employment to a percentage specified in subdivision (a), the employee may not revoke such reduced employment and return to full-time employment or any fraction thereof without the approval of the campus President or designee.

(d) The maximum period of service at the reduced time base shall not exceed five years and

(1) for employees who are members of the Public Employees' Retirement System, such reduced employment shall not extend beyond the 67th birthday of the employee;

or

(2) for employees who are members of the State Teachers' Retirement System, such reduced employment shall not extend beyond the 65th birthday of the employee.

(e) At the conclusion of an employee's maximum period of reduced service, the employee shall normally retire. An employee who does not retire following such period of service shall not return to full-time employment but may continue at the reduced level of employment outside of the workload reduction program authorized in this Article. Benefits accruing from such continued service shall be the same as the benefits which accrue to other part-time employees outside of the program.
