Can retirees be rehired as independent contractors/consultants?

Yes, as long the retiree meets all IRS and university criteria required to be an independent contractor or consultant, the retiree may be hired as such since contractors are not considered university employees. However, this mechanism must not be utilized in order to circumvent the rehire retire rules. Contractor and consultant appointments must be approved in advance by campus business services.
