Voluntary Separation

Upon notice of an employee resigning, supervisors are required to notify the Department of Human Resources immediately.  This is critical in ensuring that an employee is not overpaid upon separation from employment.  The supervisor should request written notification of resignation from the employee and attach it to a Personnel Action Form (PAF).  The PAF with attached notification should be forwarded through the normal processing departments.  The supervisor should also provide notice to the employee acknowledging acceptance of the resignation.  This should be in writing.
