If you are planning to resign or retire from UON, all academic or professional staff members need to complete the notification of resignation form.

Leaving UoN

If you are planning to resign or retire from UoN, all staff need to complete the notification of resignation form (PDF, 90KB). You don't need to submit a separate letter of resignation but you may want to attach a letter to the notification form.

Notice periods

Academic staff

Academic staff are required to give enough notice to complete existing teaching commitments. UoN will not unreasonably refuse a request to reduce the period of notice.

Casual academic staff employed on a sessional basis need to give two weeks notice, unless a shorter period is negotiated.

Professional staff

Professional staff, other than casual staff, must give at least two weeks notice. However a shorter notice period can be negotiated.

Casual staff only need to provide one hour notice of leaving their position at the University.

Teachers

Teachers are required to give enough notice to complete existing teaching commitments. UoN will not unreasonably refuse a request to reduce the period of notice.

Non-tertiary music teachers or casual staff working for 12 weeks or more need to give two weeks notice unless a shorter period is negotiated.

Feedback on your experiences at UoN

When you receive a letter from Human Resource Services acknowledging your resignation or retirement, you will be asked to complete an exit survey about your experience while at UoN. This survey is important as it provides valuable information to the organisation about what can be improved.

The letter will give you a link to the voluntary survey which will take about 10 minutes to complete.
