Employees hired on regular terminal appointments are considered regular, benefits-eligible employees whose positions have a known ending date. This normally coincides with externally funded projects and the end of the contract/funding for that project. If the project or contract is not renewed, the employment relationship ends and the supervisor completes a Transaction form indicating separation due to "End of Appointment." If possible, accumulated annual leave should be used before the final date of employment. Any remaining annual leave balance is subject to the Annual Leave-Separation and Retirement provisions in the Employee Handbook.
If an employee in a regular terminal position is unable to find a new position through the Job Opportunity Program before the appointment ends, the employee
may request, in writing, permission to continue to apply through the Job Opportunity Program
as an internal candidate. The request must be submitted to Human Resource Services no later
than the last day of employment. Access to the Job Opportunity Program will be granted for 90
days. If the employee has not found a new position at the end of the 90-day extension, he/she
must apply as an external candidate.
