Session 9: Exit, Stage Right

This final session will equip you with a thorough understanding of the policy requirements for the transfer and separation of your employees. Following the process outlined in Policy 1314 helps to protect the university's property and security, plus ensure compliance with legal and audit requirements. During the exit process, separating employees receive important benefit information, including options to continue health insurance coverage, and guidance in making important retirement plan decisions - both of which can have long-term implications. The exiting process also encourages the separating employee to participate in an exit interview, in order to gain an understanding why the employee is leaving the university.


  • Understand your role and responsibilities with the exit process
  • Learn how and when separating employee's access to various university-provided services ends
  • Understand the legal and audit requirements for a separating employee

Facilitated by: Jennifer Kester, Assistant Director, Human Resources; Julie Byers, Benefits Administrator, Human Resources; Chuck Flick, Director, Human Resources
