If you are planning to resign or retire from UON, all staff need to complete the notification of resignation form (PDF, 991KB). You don't need to submit a separate letter of resignation but you may want to attach a letter to the notification form.
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, 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 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.
Accessing you final entitlements and superannuation
Please consider the impact the effective date of your resignation or retirement will have on your ability to access your final entitlements.
If a Thursday payday is nominated as your last day of service this will enable your outstanding leave entitlements to be paid with this pay. If a resignation or retirement is shortly after payday leave and final salary payments may take up to 5 working days. Please be aware these time frames are subject to paperwork being received in HR in a timely manner.
Nominating a Thursday payday will also speed up access to superannuation withdrawals. If the last day of service is nominated as a Friday following a payday it will delay your access to withdraw superannuation funds for a period of between 2-4 weeks.
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.
