RATIFY EXCEPTION TO PERSONNEL POLICY PG-35 RELATED

TO THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF TERMINATION

Background

Personnel Policy PG-35 has been in effect since July 1, 1985. The purpose of the policy is to define the beginning and ending dates of employment. A provision of this policy states that "the effective date of termination of employment shall be the last day the employee is actively at work." On May 1, 1992, the President, under authority granted by Article IIIA.3(a) of the Morehead State University Board of Regents By-Laws, made an exception to this provision to enable employees being laid off to remain in vacation status through June 30, 1992. Some employees to be laid off currently have several weeks of accrued vacation leave. It is the University's objective to schedule these employees to take as much of their vacation as possible before June 30, 1992 so as to avoid additional costs in the 1992-93 budget.

The exception to the Effective Date of Termination provision of PG-35 is to remain in effect through June 30, 1992. A copy of Personnel Policy PG-35 is attached for information purposes.

The Staff Congress was provided an opportunity to review and provide input to the proposed changes. University Legal Counsel has also reviewed this policy.

Recommendation

That the Board ratify the May 1, 1992, action of the President related to an Exception to the Effective Date of Termination provision in University Personnel Policy PG-35.
