Once the HR Team have been made aware of your intention of leaving or that you have not secured any alternative work at the end of your fixed term contract, we will write to you to confirm leaving arrangements.
You will be asked to complete a Leaving Destination Form for payroll purposes and to collect statistical information about your reasons for leaving and your next appointment. You will ask be asked for details of your forwarding address, as well as reminded to return office keys and University card and any library books.
For e-mail account and IT matters, please read this and remember to return any borrowed equipment.
If applicable, agree the storage of your research results with your supervisor, and ensure that you complete drafting any final reports which are required by your project. You should also take the opportunity to ensure that you leave your lab in a tidy condition, and you are required to dispose of all unwanted chemicals safely. If necessary you should seek advice on how to do this from our Chemicals and Materials Safety Technician (Christina Foldbjerg Holdway).
The HR Team will also make you aware of your accrued but untaken leave. Please note that you should take your full entitlement before you leave, as payment in lieu of holiday not taken may be authorised only in exceptional circumstances, with your supervisor and HR Manager’s agreement.
If you are leaving the University you will not be able to access HR Self-Service afterwards. You should therefore log in to HR Self-Service and download copies of your payslips and P60s before your end date. Your final payslip and P45 will be issued in paper form and sent to your home address (or the forwarding address you have provided to us).
