§ 5508. Employment of pension beneficiaries by the State; exception of retired teachers in emergencies

No person, while receiving a pension under this chapter, shall be employed by the State of Delaware in any capacity except by gubernatorial appointment, election by popular vote at a regular State election, or employment as a substitute teacher during an emergency of not more than thirty (30) days duly declared by resolution of a Board of School Trustees or Board of Education. During any such term by gubernatorial appointment or election, such person so employed shall not be entitled to a pension unless he serves the term of office without pay, but retired teachers so employed during an emergency for not more than 30 days in a school term shall receive the full amount of pay to which they shall be entitled without any forfeiture or diminution of their pension whatsoever.
