Leaving, exit and end of contracts procedures
Both the council and the employee are normally entitled to a minimum period of notice of termination of employment.
The minimum periods of notice to terminate employment are listed in the Employee Handbook.
Managers must complete a leaver’s form as soon as an employee resigns from their post – either for another internal post or if they are leaving the council.

Further to completion of the form, managers should complete the leaver checklist and return to Human Resources.

Exit Questionnaire (external website)
Employees will be given access to a survey link in order to complete an exit questionnaire. If an employee wishes to have an additional exit interview with their line manager, HR Business Partner or Senior manager then they are able to request one.
