54. Notice of resignation

54.1  A staff member (other than a casual or continuing contingent funded staff member) must give the University the period of notice of resignation specified in their contract of employment, or at least 2 weeks' notice, whichever is greater. A shorter period of notice will be agreed by the delegate where this can be done without a demonstrable adverse effect on University operations and in particular meeting teaching and research commitments.

54.2   A staff member employed on a continuing contingent funded contract must give the University at least 4 weeks' notice of resignation.

54.3   Where a staff member resigns before completing 3 years' service or the agreed term of a fixed term appointment of less than 3 years, a pro rata refund of the cost of travel and removal expenses made upon appointment may be required.
