Employees serving a probationary period or holding limited, rehired retiree, or student assistant appointments may be released at any time at the discretion of the Laboratory. The employee shall be notified of the release in writing.
An employee holding a limited, rehired retiree, or student assistant appointment is automatically terminated as of the last day of the appointment unless there is an earlier separation or formal extension of the appointment in writing.
See RPM 2.05(C) (Corrective Action and Dismissal).
Employees who are terminated for security reasons at the request of DOE may be given, with the approval of DOE, payment for up to 20 working days in lieu of advance written notice of such termination.
The date of an employee's death is also the effective date of termination from Laboratory service. Payment of salary or wages and vacation credit due to a deceased employee is made to the employee's estate or the heirs-at-law, in accordance with California state law. Determination of whether to pay the amount due to the estate or the heir(s) is based on the nature and value of the estate and the amount due. When the amount due is less than $3,000, direct payment to the heir(s) is often permissible. Processing is handled by the Human Resources Department. See RPM §2.06(C)(4) (University Death Benefits for Employees) for other information pertaining to an employee's death.
