Regular Executive, Administrative, and Professional Staff Probationary Period
4.4.2 Probationary Period
The probationary period allows all parties the opportunity to
assess performance and the overall viability of the employment
relationship. Upon completion of the probationary period, employment
can only be terminated for cause.
All EAP staff members will remain in probationary status for a
period of twelve (12) calendar months actually worked. The
employment relationship during the probationary period is considered
to be "at will" in as much as the university and the staff
member retain the right to terminate employment with or without
cause at anytime.
In the event that the university elects to terminate
employment for reasons other than those noted below, the
probationary staff member will normally be provided four weeks
notice or four weeks pay and benefits in lieu of notice, or until
the staff member secures new employment, whichever is sooner.
Staff members terminated for reasons such as moral turpitude,
violation of university policies and procedures, failure to follow
directions/instructions of supervisors and superiors, conviction of
a felony, neglect of professional responsibility, failure to follow
statutory or regulatory requirements of the position, and other
similar acts, shall have their compensation and benefits terminated
effective upon termination of employment.
