Continuous Appointments. Following the probationary
period a continuous appointment may be terminated by the appointing
officer for cause. Such termination will be communicated in writing
along with the reasons for dismissal. Normally, at least four weeks
notice of termination or four weeks pay in lieu of notice will be
given unless continuation of employment would be detrimental to the
best interest of the university. The staff member may appeal
dismissal for cause through the grievance procedure or in the event
the president is the appointing officer to the chairperson of the
Board of Trustees. If the appointing officer's decision is not
upheld, the staff member may be reinstated without loss of pay.
- Employment Contract Appointments. An employment contract may be terminated prior to the expiration date subject to the provisions of the contract. Such termination will be communicated in writing along with the reason for early termination of the contract. The staff member may appeal early termination through the grievance procedure. The non-renewal of an employment contract is not a grievable issue.
