Separation From Employment

Upon separation from the College, an employee is responsible for returning all College property and paying all outstanding bills. The College requires two weeks’ notice prior to exiting and an exit interview in the Human Resources Department in order for a faculty or staff member to be paid for unused vacation time. Under certain circumstances, an administrative or confidential staff member may not be eligible for a cash-out of unused vacation time (see section 6.2.1 of this Handbook).

After separation of employment, the Human Resources Department will release information in response to inquiries concerning former faculty or staff only upon written authorization of the individual. However, without such written authorization when contacted, Human Resources will provide information concerning the individual’s date of hire, last day worked and job title held. The College will release additional information in response to a valid court order or on written request from a governmental agency. 

14.1 Exit Interview and Other Separation Procedures 

The Human Resources Benefits Office will contact you to conduct an exit interview to discuss the termination of your benefits. You will be expected to return College ID cards, keys, passwords, computer equipment and any other College property (e.g., uniforms). 

14.2 Return of College Property 

Employees are responsible for all College property, materials, or written information issued to them or in their possession or control. Employees must return all College property on or before their last day of work. 

14.3 Falsification of Information 

The College relies upon the accuracy of information contained in the employment application, as well as the accuracy of other data presented throughout the hiring process and employment. Any misrepresentations, falsifications, or material omissions in any of this information or data may result in the College’s exclusion of you from further consideration for employment. 

If the decision to hire you was based on inaccurate or incomplete information, the College may decide to terminate your employment. 

Falsification of time recorded on timesheets may result in immediate dismissal (see section 5.8.1 of this Handbook.) 

14.4 References 

When the College is contacted by prospective employers seeking information about former faculty and staff, the College will release the following data: the positions formerly held and the dates of employment. Pay information will not be released unless the College receives written authorization.
