Are you transferring to a different area? Have you accepted a position with a different employer? Or are you thinking of retiring? As you prepare for this next phase in your life, there are some steps that you need to follow as an employee before you separate from the university.
Notify HR By E-mail
The first step is to notify Human Resources that you are leaving by sending an e-mail to HRexit@unlv.edu. Please note that this notification does not take the place of an official resignation letter. However, the earlier HR is notified that you are leaving, the sooner we can take the appropriate action to ensure that you separation proceeds as smoothly as possible. The e-mail needs to include the following:
You will still need to submit a letter of resignation to your supervisor listing the information listed above. If you are a classified employee, you must complete the Resignation from State Service form.
Letter of Resignation
The letter of resignation or the resignation form needs to be acknowledged or accepted by your supervisor and/or department. A copy of both the resignation letter/form and acceptance must be forwarded to HR as soon as possible and before you leave UNLV.
Upon receipt of this information, HR will notify certain departments on campus to ensure that you have no outstanding items. If there are outstanding items, HR will notify you directly. It is your responsibility to clear out any outstanding items prior to separation. Any delay could result in a delay in the release of your final check. We will send notices to the following departments:
To assist you and your department in this separation process, we have developed the following tools.
If you are eligible to receive a payout of your annual leave, we recommend that you meet with your department leavekeeper to ensure that all leave taken and any leave you plan to take between now and your separation date has been posted to your leave balance. To expedite the payment of your annual leave, you and your supervisor will need to sign your final leave card agreeing to the balances posted.
You will also need to sit down with a benefits representative to discuss continuation of benefits. Please contact 895-3504 to schedule an appointment. Your representative will discuss the following options available to you:
If you are planning on retiring, and wish to continue your benefits as a retiree, we recommend that you contact a benefits representative at least one month prior to your intended retirement date. If you are age 65 or over, you will also need Medicare. We recommend that you contact Medicare directly at least three months before your intended retirement date.
