Dismissal and Suspension

A classified employee who has completed the provisional employment period may be dismissed or suspended by the immediate supervisor if the employee’s performance of duty or personal conduct is unsatisfactory. Except under emergency circumstances when immediate action is necessary, the employee will be fully and promptly informed of the reasons for suspension and/or dismissal and granted a reasonable opportunity to respond to the next higher authority prior to the contemplated action through available administrative procedures, including a post-action hearing before a Board of Review. Any employee who has been dismissed or suspended without pay and who is later reinstated after appeal, shall be paid at his or her regular rate from the date of dismissal or suspension if ordered by the President or the Board of Regents.
