The University of California (UC) Office of the President has issued the final revision of PPSM 64: Termination and Job Abandonment.
The changes in PPSM 64 include the consolidation of three existing policies: PPSM-64 Termination of Career Employees – Professional & Support Staff; PPSM-65 Termination of Career Employees – Managers & Senior Professionals, Salary Grades I through VII; and PPSM-67 Termination of Career Employees – Managers & Senior Professionals, Salary Grades VII and IX.
The combined policy underwent full review to bring it into compliance with the three-year policy review requirement and the Working Smarter directive to combine policies where appropriate. The revision of this policy was to align with Career Tracks and other salary-grade structures currently in use at UC locations. In addition, duplicative language was removed, current language was streamlined and the structure of the policy was revised for clarity and ease of use.
PPSM 64 describes separation from employment due to job abandonment and the process for terminating career employees in the Professional & Support Staff (PSS) and Managers & Senior Professionals (MSP) personnel groups who are not Officers of the University.
