Voluntary Termination

Employees who are voluntarily terminating their employment at Brown University should submit a letter of resignation to their supervisor and should complete an online Exit Interview Questionnaire.

If so desired, employees who are voluntarily terminating their employment may also contact an HR Generalist or the Director of Employee Relations for an employment exit interview.

Voluntary Termination--General Guidelines

An employee's letter of resignation should include the reason for separation and the effective date.
Employees who work on the semimonthly payroll should provide a minimum of two weeks' notice prior to resignation. Those working on the monthly payroll should provide 30 days' notice.

Employees who are absent from work for three or more consecutive working days without contacting their immediate supervisors will be deemed to have voluntarily terminated employment.
Individuals re-employed by Brown within 12 months of their last workday may receive credit for the previous time worked according to the Credit for Prior Service policy (20.023).
