Termination of Employment Policy

Policy Author:
Employee Engagement

Responsible Office – Department:
Employee Engagement

Effective Date of Policy:
February 2, 2021

Employees who resign or are terminated must return all College property before or on their last day of employment which may include: keys, library materials, staff identification card, portable technology equipment, credit cards etc.  Vacation or other paid time off cannot be used to extend the effective date of termination beyond the employee’s last day of work or be substituted for 2 weeks-notice.  See the Staff Vacation Policy for further information regarding payment of unused, accrued vacation time.

Voluntary Resignation

Employees who voluntarily resign or retire should give as much notice as possible (at least two weeks). Resignation notices should be submitted in writing to a supervisor or department head with a copy sent to the Employee Engagement Department, HR@daemen.edu.

Upon receipt of a letter of resignation, the Office of Employee Engagement will schedule an exit meeting with the employee to review their benefits and the resigning employee will be asked to complete an exit survey.  

Involuntary Termination

Employees are “at will” and their employment may be terminated by the College at any time with or without cause.  Involuntary termination may include a layoff, termination for cause, or reduction in workforce.

Involuntary termination of an employee during regular business hours will be coordinated with the Campus Safety Department and the IT Department. Terminated employees may be escorted by a Campus Safety Officer following their termination meeting to retrieve any personal belongings.
