What is the process for employees who are ending their employment with Olympic College?

All employees who end their employment with Olympic College should provide a letter of resignation/retirement at least 15 calendar days before the effective date of the resignation/retirement.

Full-time employees are to submit their letters directly to Dr. Mitchell and provide copies to their supervisor and to Human Resource Services (HRS). Adjunct faculty, part-time hourly and student employees are to submit their letters to their supervisor and send a copy to HRS. Letters should indicate if it is a resignation or retirement and include the effective date of your resignation/retirement.

Upon receipt, supervisors must complete and submit a separation Personnel Action Form (PAF) to HRS for faculty, classified, part-time hourly and student employees.

HRS will mail exiting forms (exit checkout, benefits information and retirement forms - if applicable) to the employee to review, complete and return. Employees must take the exit checkout form with all their keys, badges and parking placards to the Safety and Security Office. Business cards and name tags are to be returned to HRS.

For employees on a temporary employment basis, supervisors need to contact HRS 10 days prior to the last day.

If at any time an employee would like to withdraw their resignation/retirement, they may do so prior to the effective date.
