Resignations and Terminations

Employees who separate from the university, except in the case of retirement or layoff, will be removed from the payroll on the last day of actual work. Compensation for vacation time will be included in the final paycheck.

Employees terminating their employment must give at least two weeks' advance notice in order to resign their positions in good standing. In turn, employees must be given two weeks' advance notice if being terminated because of circumstances for which they are not responsible, such as discontinuation of job, reorganization, etc.

Advance notice is not required when termination is a result of incidents which in and of themselves are so serious as to justify immediate summary discharge. It is also not required if there is a failure to meet punctuality or attendance standards, misconduct, abuse of privilege, violation of university policy or when progressive discipline has been followed. Upon termination, employees must return their keys, ID cards or badges, and other equipment or items issued to them to perform their job. (HR 118, 226, 601)
