Resignation

There may come a time when you wish to voluntarily resign your position at NYIT. There is a specific procedure in place that you must follow in order to leave NYIT with your employment in good standing, an important factor if you decide to reapply for a position here in the future. You must provide a signed letter of resignation, including the effective date of your resignation, to your supervisor, with a copy to the Office of Human Resources. This letter should include the effective date of your resignation (the last day you will work), which must be a minimum of two weeks after the date of your letter. Upon receiving your letter, the Office of Human Resources will forward a separation clearance form to your supervisor. This must be returned to the Office of Human Resources on or about your last day of employment.

You must return any NYIT property, including keys, library books, communications equipment, and identification cards, to the location indicated on the separation clearance form. In addition, you should be sure all of your timesheets have been submitted to the payroll department so that your unused vacation time can be properly calculated. You will receive pay for any unused, accrued vacation time. Other types of accrued paid leave, including personal time, are not payable upon resignation.

Position Elimination

If your position is eliminated caused by (but not limited to) the elimination of a job function, the closing of a department, or NYIT's financial needs, you will be considered for other employment at NYIT if a position exists for which you are qualified. If no appropriate vacancy exists at that time and your employment is terminated as a result, you will be eligible for severance pay equal to one week's pay for each year of regular, continuous, full-time employment completed, up to a maximum of 12 weeks' pay. You will also receive pay for any unused, accrued vacation time. You must return any NYIT property, as determined by the separation clearance form, immediately upon your separation.

Termination

If your employment is terminated by NYIT for any reason other than an elimination of your position, you will receive pay for any unused, accrued vacation time. You must return any NYIT property, as determined by the separation clearance form, immediately upon your separation.
