Policy statement and purpose
To set out the policy governing the resignations of certain
non-represented employee groups and the conducting of exit interviews.
All faculty, administrative and classified staff who terminate
employment with BGSU are asked to give, in writing, a reasonable notification
of their plans. Two weeks' notice is standard for classified staff and one
month's notice is standard for administrative staff. Faculty
at the associate and full professor rank
are asked to give four
at least three months notification
prior to the end of the academic year as per the
collective bargaining agreement between the university and the BGSU faculty
while instructors and
assistant professors are asked to give two months notification.
(1) All employees are expected to return
university-owned property and equipment (library books, keys, etc.) and to
clear up any financial obligations they may have with the university.
(2) All employees are asked to complete an
exit interview. The office of human resources conducts these interviews for
administrative staff and classified staff; the office of the provost conducts
them for faculty and faculty administrators. The interview will cover the
status of insurance, retirement, and other benefits upon termination, and
instructions about the return of identification cards, parking decals, keys and
other property belonging to the university. A fee may be deducted from the
employee's last payroll check in the event that university identification
cards, keys, telephone cards, uniforms, and parking decals, etc., are not
returned. Failure to return other university property, including library
materials, will be dealt with on an individual basis.
It is the responsibility of the
employee's immediate supervisor to verify the unused sick leave balance for the
employee at time of termination and forward that information to the office of
human resources. The supervisor should inform the president, the appropriate
vice-president or dean, of the date of termination and balance of unused
vacation time to be paid to the employee so steps can be taken to remove the
individual from payroll.
