POLICY'S INITIAL DATE: May 1, 1957

NOTE: The implementation of SIMBA requires the review of many University Human Resource Policies and Guidelines. After consultation with key constituencies, work has been underway to update, consolidate, and improve our policies and guidelines to better serve the Penn State community. However, please be aware that due to the volume of the impacted policies and guidelines, not all policies are currently updated to reflect changes which have been communicated; however, the policies will be updated soon and have appropriate and applicable effective dates listed. We appreciate your patience as we work through this review process. Any questions can be directed to HR Services at 814-865-1473 or submit an inquiry via WorkLion.

PURPOSE:

To state the University's policy concerning the effective date of employment or termination for an employee paid monthly (except Academic).

When an employee retires from the University, the effective date of termination shall be the date immediately preceding the date of retirement. (See HR50, Use of Vacation Time in the Event of Retirement or Resignation, and HRG14, Establishing Date of Termination of Employment Occurring Near December/New Year's Holiday Period.)
