Ending Employment


An employee's resignation from employment is usually uneventful. Occasionally an employee will request to rescind a resignation. Some labor contracts may provide for a period during which an employee who has resigned may rescind the resignation. A professional staff employee rescinding a resignation requires approval of the employing official.
