Resignations/Terminations

Voluntary Resignation
Employees that voluntarily choose to end their employment with the University should initiate the process.  These steps should be completed by the employee and the manager:

The employee:

  1. reviews the Employee Resignation Checklist and performs the necessary transitional tasks to prepare for their exit from the university.
  2. completes a letter of resignation and identifies the last active day of employment, and
  3. submits the resignation letter to his/her immediate manager and to employeerelations@depaul.edu
  4. Exit Survey
    We would appreciate all employees leaving the University to take about 8-10 minutes to answer the questions as honestly as possible. Your individual responses are treated as confidential, and will not become part of your personnel file. We believe that the information is of vital importance and will assist in analyzing our employee retention and turnover. Thank you for your cooperation!

The manager:

  1. reviews the Manager Termination Checklist and performs the necessary transition tasks to prepare for the employee’s departure.
  2. consult with Employee Relations representative to discuss any outstanding issues or concerns.    
  3. processes the termination request in PeopleSoft.  Termination Request Step-by-Step Guide 

Note: Prompt processing of the required documents allows the manager the opportunity to begin immediate recruiting efforts to fill their vacancy.

Involuntary
An involuntary termination is when management makes the decision that an employee should be released from his/her job responsibilities. In such situations, an Employee Relations representative must be consulted prior to the discharge. This meeting will determine if appropriate and documented progressive discipline procedures, have been applied. For employees not subject to progressive discipline (employees within the 6 month introductory period), this meeting will be to discuss and review the employee’s unsatisfactory progress since his/her hire date.
