Resignation is a voluntary act initiated by the employee to terminate employment with Wilkes University. Although advance notice is not required, Wilkes University requests a written two-week notice (non-exempt staff) or four-week notice (exempt staff) from employees.
Prior to an employee's departure, an exit interview will be scheduled to discuss the reasons for resignation and the effect of the resignation on benefits.
If an employee does not provide advance notice as indicated above, the employee will not receive accrued vacation leave in accordance with established policy (See Vacation Benefits Policy #303) and will be considered ineligible for rehire.
