How to handle employee separation

When an employee announces his or her intent to leave employment at the College, it is critical that the supervisor complete the appropriate termination form as soon as possible.  Timely processing of the termination form  provides various departments with information they need as the employee prepares to depart (e.g., terminate access to rooms and buildings, collect outstanding library resources, adjust benefits and advise of COBRA rights, etc.)   For additional guidance on what to do when an employee announces (s)he will be leaving the College, contact Human Resources and review the handbook section on Employee Separation

Additional EAP Resources for Managers and Supervisors

The MEMBER section of Anthem’s EAP website offers members access to 98 interactive, online courses developed by QuicKnowledge that cover a wide range of personal and professional growth topics.  Courses have been designed to target very specific content so that most members can complete a course within 30-45 minutes. Members create a personal user name and password and may print a Certificate of Completion when they finish a Skill Builder.

Topics range from Basics of Effective Communication and Building a Successful Team to Recognizing and Avoiding Burnout and Time Management.   Skill builders are organized under the tabs at the top of the MEMBER section of Anthem's EAP website. Or, if you know the name of the course you would like to access, simply enter the title in the search field of the MEMBER section of the website – click Enter and scroll down – it is that easy!
