  • Your Employment Ends


    Employees desiring to voluntarily terminate their employment are urged to notify the University at least two weeks in advance of their intended termination date. Such notice should preferably be given in writing to the immediate supervisor and the department head. The notice should be addressed to the President and forwarded to the Human Resources Office for processing. Proper notice allows the University time to prepare your final payroll documents and to calculate any terminal leave for which you may be entitled. Without proper notice, you may have to wait an additional pay period to receive your last paycheck.

    Employees who are planning to retire should notify the Human Resources Office three months in advance. This will allow ample time to file the application for retirement and other supporting documentation. Employees eligible for social security should contact their local Social Security Office at least three months in advance of their expected retirement date to allow for the processing of related Social Security documents.

    All temporary appointments (restricted, intermittent, job appointments, probational and provisional appointments) are on an "at will" basis and may be terminated at any time with no reason given.

    Permanent classified employees may be terminated for cause or in an approved lay off in accordance with Civil Service Rules. Although it is hoped the relationships with employees are long-term and mutually rewarding, the University reserves the right to terminate employment relationship in accordance with applicable Civil Service Rules. If an employee who is required to drive as part of the essential duties of the position has his/her license revoked or suspended, the employee may be subject to non-disciplinary removal because the employee is no longer able to carry out the duties of the position.

    Exit interviews with the Human Resources Office are normally scheduled for outgoing employees after supervisors receive notices of resignation or intent to retire and for employees whose termination is being initiated by Southeastern. This is usually done on the last day of work. The purpose of this interview is to review eligibility for continuation of benefits and conversion, to ensure that all necessary forms are completed, to collect all University property (credit cards, I.D.s, keys, uniforms, etc.), and to provide employees with an opportunity to discuss their job-related experiences.



  • Counseling Services for Employees and Their Families


    Southeastern recognizes that a wide range of problems - such as marital or family distress, alcoholism, and drug abuse not associated with an individual job function can nonetheless be detrimental to an employee's performance on the job. Consequently we believe it is in the interest of the employees and the University to provide assistance to employees and their families in resolving these as the need arises. To this end, our employee assistance program provides consultation services through the University Counseling Center for evaluation and referral to local community treatment providers. Services offered by the University Counseling Center are at no cost to the employee. Employees are solely responsible for services or treatment programs offered by off- campus medical providers as a result of a referral. All employees are encouraged to use this program. Employee visits to the EAP are held in confidence to the maximum possible extent.

    Participation in our EAP does not excuse employees from complying with normal University policies or from meeting normal job requirements during or after receiving assistance. Nor will participation in a EAP prevent Southeastern from taking disciplinary action against any employee for performance problems that occur before or after the employee's seeking assistance through the EAP.
