This would not be unheard of.

Some private schools even give employee's kids DEEP discounts. Maintenence guy I know at Williamete U tells me his kids can go for far less then a state school.

Given UM's emphasis on a rather formulaic admission process, I'd doubt very much that having parents that were FORMER employees would matter.
Many give a tip to kids of current employees, or a tuition break, but not all (such as my employer, a well known Boston area institution.)

some colleges and universities award points to the person if one of their guardian works at the institution. the college may also reduce their tuition. if i would attend u of chicago my tuition would be cut in half since my dad is an employee and i would also receive points on my admission. i find that pretty awesome, for me at least.

How do you know? Do you have to contact the school to find out? And how would you put down that your parents used to work there?

I know a kid whose dad works a University of Maryland. If he gets a B average he gets in, but hes an idiot and hes gonna mess it up.

Wake forest gives I think a 97% tuition reduction to sons and daughters of employees. Duke does something similar...
