Terminiation & Alternatives to Terminiation

Employee Discipline Procedures for Professional, Other Academic and Classified Employees

PS-08, Revision: PS0008.R06, Effective: June, 16, 1997

Excerpt from PS-08: 

Termination is the last resort when less severe forms of the positive discipline system do not correct performance or behavior problems. Because of the serious nature of termination, it is sometimes necessary to suspend an employee pending investigation. The suspension is to investigate the problem and confer with the appropriate officials regarding the decision to discharge. The suspension requires Appointing Authority approval. Terminations for cause require Appointing Authority approval and are appealable to the Civil Service Commission.

Alternatives to Termination include involuntary reassignment and/or involuntary demotion.
