Exiting Process

Managers should inform the Department of Human Resources of any expected terminations as soon as possible. The University seeks to consistently apply its policies, procedures and practices during the termination process. The Department of Human Resources can assist you during the process and establish a smooth off-boarding experience whenever possible.

Staff and faculty have slight differences in their exiting processes, as do voluntary and involuntary exits, so please use the links to the right in preparation for a termination of employment in your area. Because the termination form is the primary document that serves as the start of the termination process, it is imperative that the form be completed as soon as possible and forwarded to the Department of Human Resources.
