How Do I Process a Staff Resignation (EPAF)?


An employee may elect to resign or leave the University voluntarily through mutual agreement with the University. The employee should submit a written resignation giving two (2) weeks notice to his or her supervisor. Resignations also occur when:

  • An employee walks off the job.
  • An employee is absent for three (3) consecutive work days without the supervisor's permission, except when an emergency precludes giving notice.  Work days are considered consecutive even when broken by normal non working days such as holidays or weekends.
  • An employee fails to return to work, within the prescribed time limits, following an authorized leave of absence.
