Resignation (Off-Boarding)

A resignation is a voluntary separation of employment. Although it is customary to provide at least two (2) week’s notice to allow Payroll Services to process the final pay accurately and in a timely manner, it is not legally required. To initiate your resignation from the University, you are encouraged to provide notification to your supervisor and then click on the “Initiate Resignation” blue button to begin the process. When initiating your resignation, please have readily available your employee ID number, supervisor’s name and email address, last physical working day, and last day on Payroll. To help you transition smoothly, please download this Off-Boarding Guide. For questions regarding resignations, email hrdept@csusb.edu or call 909-537-5138.

Resignation Note:

Per AB 2410, which amended Section 220 of the Labor Code, an employee who voluntarily resigns must be paid wages earned and accrued benefits (vacation, CTO, personal holiday, etc.) no later than 72 hours from the date of separation. However, if the employee provides at least 72 hours' notice, he/she is entitled to the earned wages and accrued benefits at the date of separation.
