Termination of Employment
- You can voluntarily elect termination.
- If you voluntarily elect to terminate your employment you should give at least two weeks notice to your supervisor
If you are withdrawn or taking a leave of absence from the University you will be terminated and are not eligible to work on campus after your official academic separation date. There are no exceptions to this rule.
An involuntary termination can be initiated by your employer due to an unsatisfactory performance or an inability to comply with University and/or office rules and regulations. Except for situations of serious misconduct (see Immediate Release) employers who terminate employees for just cause are required to:
- Give the employee a verbal warning upon the first instance of misconduct. If misconduct continues, a written warning is to be issued and a copy sent to SFS. If the matter is still not resolved, a written termination notice may be issued and a termination should be processed in Workday.
- A student who is involuntarily terminated will receive consideration for jobs only after all aided and non-aided students have been placed. Future on-campus employers may be informed of your performance/conduct history. The Student Employment Office will share pertinent information that is deemed appropriate and/or related to your ability to perform the new job.
Acts of serious misconduct will not be tolerated and may result in an immediate release from employment.
- Examples of serious misconduct may include but are not limited to:
- serious disregard of University rules, disorderly conduct, the unauthorized possession, distribution, use of or being under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, or other non-prescription drugs or controlled substances during work hours, theft of University property or the personal property of a student, staff, or faculty member, breach of confidentiality, falsification of employment, payroll, or other documents, harassment, gross incompetence, and/or insubordination or refusal to perform assigned tasks.
Employers who terminate an employee under this policy are required to:
- Inform the employee in writing that she or he is being released and send a copy to the Office of Student Financial Services. The Office of Student Financial Services will review the immediate release for appropriateness. Future eon-campus employers may be informed of your performance/conduct history. The Student Employment Office will share pertinent information that is deemed appropriate and/or related to your ability to perform the new job.
- In the event that the misconduct constitutes a potential violation of community standards or policies published in the Rights and Responsibilities Handbook, we reserve the right to Report It!
