Separation Workflow Process is a digital process that promotes accountability in the university's separation process by encouraging response to pending actions in a timely manner. All full-time employee and permanent part-time separations are processed via the Separation Workflow. Temporary employees, adjuncts and student employees who are separating prior to the end of their contract term are also be subject to the Separation Workflow Process.
As a chair or supervisor, you will be able to enter the employee’s separation information directly into an online workflow form. Once you have entered the requested information and submit, the separation process flow will begin. A communication is sent to the hiring manager detailing each action that has taken place. Consequently, the progression of the action can be traced.
A series of automated communications will notify you, HR, the related departments and offices of the employee’s separation.
