In order to recruit a vacancy, the hiring official must have a letter of resignation or retirement from the outgoing employee submitted to the Human Resources office. The letter of resignation or retirement must specifically state the last date the employee will be on payroll (which is not necessarily the last day on campus). Hiring officials may only make a verbal or written offer of employment to an applicant with an effective starting date after the last day the employee will be on payroll. Please refer to the paid leave bank and vacation cash payout procedure for more information.
