Things to sort out before you leave

Annual leave

You are entitled to annual leave for each complete month you have worked up to your leaving date, plus the Bank Holidays and Closure days which fall into that period.  A complete month is where you are in post for all the working days of that month.

This will be pro rata to contracted hours for part-time staff. You can use the annual leave calculator to help you calculate this.

Any outstanding annual leave should be taken during your notice period. You will need to discuss and agree this with your line manager. If this is not possible, you will be paid for any outstanding amount. If you have taken more leave than you are entitled to, a deduction will be made from your final salary payment.

P45

Please ensure that we have your current address to send your P45.  You can log into MyView to update your personal details.

Final salary payment

If you have an interest-free loan from the University any remaining balance will need to be paid in full or will be deducted from your final monthly salary.

Relocation expenses

If you are resigning within two years of taking up appointment, you will be required to repay 1/24th of the amount you received for each calendar month (or part month) after your leaving date. This amount may be deducted from your final salary payment.

University equipment and property

You must complete a Staff Exit Checklist with your line manager to ensure that all necessary arrangements are made for the handover of your work and the return of all University property, your staff card and keys, etc, before you leave.

Exit interview

We are keen to hear your views about the University and your role. This will help us to understand why you are leaving and to identify any improvements we could make for the future. You may be asked to attend an exit interview with your line manager. If you prefer you may ask to discuss this with a member of HR staff.

Tell us where you are going

You will be sent a questionnaire, please return this to tell us where you will be working. This information is required for HESA records.
