Primary Information

    This pertains to any benefits-eligible staff who has standard hours of 17.5 hours/week or more and is not otherwise covered by a collective bargaining agreement

    The University hopes that employees will develop long-term careers at Tufts that are both fulfilling and successful. However, if an employee feels the need to resign, they may do so at any time, for any reason. Employees who choose to voluntarily resign should submit a written notice to his or her supervisor, before leaving the University. This written notification should include the effective date of resignation, specific reason(s) for the resignation, the employee’s position and department, and the employee’s legal signature. Employees are encouraged to give their supervisor as much notice as possible to provide for appropriate coverage for the duties and other responsibilities of the role. It is suggested that between three to four weeks’ notice is optimal.
      When leaving employment at Tufts, identification cards, keys, and other University property must be returned to the employee’s direct manager.  Please read additional information regarding an exit interview, vacation payout and more.
    Tufts University's third-party vendor, EBPA, will generate the necessary paperwork regarding continuation of benefits (including Health, Dental, Vision and FSA) and mails the information to the outgoing employee's home address.  Employees should confirm that their address in PeopleSoft is correct so that they receive the information concerning the continuation of certain insurance benefits.  By law, that information must be sent to employees via US Mail following their separation from service.  Please find COBRA rates as well as Benefits Term Information in the Related Information section below.
