Leaving University Service - Unclassified Employees
Departing employees should give at least two weeks advance notice to their supervisors and the Office of Human Resources. Please state the reason(s) why you are leaving and indicate your last date of work at UW-L. Your letter will be forwarded by your supervisor to your Dean/Division Officer who, after approval, forwards it to the Provost. Upon Provost approval, the letter is delivered to Human Resources. An acknowledgement letter is then issued to the individual leaving University service.
You should complete an Exit Checklist, available from your department, unit, or the Office of Human Resources, which will be maintained in the department or unit for one year following your departure from the University. The Office of Human Resources will also advise you regarding your benefits, final paychecks, and other separation information. For questions regarding the Exit Checklist, such as who should complete one and the responsibilities of the department or unit you are departing, please see the Exit Directions. All University keys, equipment, uniforms, textbooks, library materials, etc. provided to you must be returned intact to the appropriate office to ensure proper processing of your final paycheck.
The Office of Affirmative Action will send you an Exit Interview Questionnaire to be completed prior to your last day. Employees who would like to communicate directly about the work climate in their department or unit should contact the Office of Affirmative Action to schedule an exit interview. Information will be maintained in a confidential file in the Affirmative Action Office and will not become part of the employee's personnel file.
