New Process for Separation Checklists – Effective the First Week of July 2018

Human Resources, in coordination with the Division of Information Technology and several other campus departments, has created a more efficient process in regards to separation checklists for all employees. Effective the first week of July 2018, a separation checklist will be required for all separating employees, to include full-time, wage, students, work study, work scholarship, and graduate assistants. A new student employee separation checklist has been created for student employees.

As part of this change, separation EPAFs will no longer be required for wage employees separating at a defined job end date. Student wage, temporary wage, graduate assistants and work study/work scholarship positions all have a defined job end date. Supervisors will automatically receive an email 14 calendar days from the employee’s job end date with information to either complete a separation checklist or complete a wage continuation EPAF. A separation EPAF will be required for all full-time and 1500-hour wage employees as well as other employees separating from their position prior to the job end date. For more information, read the employee separation/transfer procedures.

This is part of Human Resources’ efforts to enhance our end users’ experience with PeopleAdmin SelectSuite. Additional information will be available soon as to the date of the rollout and where you can find training materials.
