An employee planning to resign his/her employment with the College should notify his/her immediate supervisor in writing. When possible, full-time regular classified staff should give at least two weeks’ notice; administrators, professional support and faculty should give at least four (4) weeks’ notice. All other employees should provide reasonable advance notice if they plan to terminate prior to their scheduled separation date.
Employees must clear through their own department, the Human Resources Department, the Business Office, and the Payroll Office before final paychecks will be issued (refer to the Employee Separation procedure). An employee's last working day is normally the termination date. All College property, including all keys, library books, etc., must be surrendered as part of the exit clearance processing.
Accrued vacation is payable upon termination, is not considered as service, and is not subject to retirement contributions. Personal leave will not be paid upon termination. Board Policy 3.32.13 permits the payoff of a percentage of sick leave upon separation for those individuals who have at least five (5) years of continuous, eligible full-time service.
Employees planning to retire from the College should make an application for retirement and report to the Employee Benefits Office in the Human Resources Department for retirement counseling at least three (3) months in advance of the requested retirement date.
