SECTION 1. RESIGNATION IN GOOD STANDING:
A. In order to resign in good standing a permanent or probationary employee shall submit a written notice to the appointing authority at least fourteen days in advance, unless the latter agrees to shorter notice. The appointing authority shall forward this notice to the Director for inclusion in the employee’s personnel file. Failure by the employee to give this notice may result in forfeiture of future employment rights, as well as the right to have his/her name replaced on the reinstatement eligible list.
B. Resignation severs all seniority and employment rights, except that of requesting replacement of the former employee’s name on an appropriate eligible list, as provided in Rule VIII.
SECTION 2. RESIGNATION NOT IN GOOD STANDING: The Director may refuse to place the name of a former permanent or probationary employee upon an eligible list or may exclude him/her from examinations if such employee has resigned while charges are pending against him/her, or while under suspension, or has, without the department head’s approval, given less than fourteen days notice in advance of resignation.
