What is the obligation to a retiring but returning partner?

Q: Our senior partner is planning to retire for one day in April 2008 and then come back as a part time partner. He says he wants to fit his work in with his out-of-hours on-call work: he does three nights a week now and is planning to do more. We are now a three partner surgery. Do we have to offer him a part time partnership, or can we offer him salaried part time work or profit share work? What is our legal position?
