Resignation from Employment - Classified Employees
An employee who voluntarily leaves state service is required to submit a letter including the effective date of the resignation. The letter is submitted to Human Resources with a copy to the supervisor not less than 14 calendar days prior to the effective date. Once a notice of resignation is submitted, there can be no withdrawal or stopping of the resignation action except upon mutual written agreement between the employee and the University.
All University keys, uniforms, ID cards, and equipment provided to the employee must be returned by the resignation date, and the employee should complete an Exit Checklist, available from the department, unit, or Human Resources, which will be maintained in the department or unit for one year following the employee's departure from the University.
The Office of Human Resources will advise the employee regarding continuation of benefits and other separation information. For questions regarding the Exit Checklist, such as who should complete one and the responsibilities of the department or unit an employee is departing, please see the Exit Directions.
Permanent employees who voluntarily resign may request reinstatement to positions in the same, counterpart, or lower pay range for which they may be qualified within five years from termination.
