From giving notice to your manager to getting paid for unused vacation and filling out an exit survey, there are a few considerations to keep in mind when leaving UBC.
Giving notice: length of time varies by employee group
Before ending your employment, you'll need to let your manager know you're leaving. Here's how much notice you need to give, based on your union or affiliation:
- CUPE 2950: 10 working days
- CUPE 116 (Regular employees): One month
- CUPE 116 (All other employees with three months continuous service or more): One week
- CUPE 2278: 10 working days
- BCGEU (Child Care): One month
- Management and professional: One month
- Non-union technicians: Three weeks
- Executive administrative: Three weeks
If you have unused accumulated vacation when you leave UBC, you'll be paid for it on your last paycheque. For more information, contact your administrator, or review your employee group’s handbook or agreement.
Benefits and pension
Take care of any outstanding benefits claims and familiarize yourself with what happens to your benefits, including life insurance, when you leave the university.
If you leave UBC for any reason after age 55, you may be eligible for retirement and survivor benefits.
