In the event that you decide to leave McGill, please provide written notification to your Chair/Director, with a copy to your Dean and the Academic Personnel Office. An email will suffice, but a letter containing an original signature, sent by mail or attached as a PDF to your email, is preferable.

Staff members are asked to provide 4 weeks’ prior notice of termination. However, to allow for an appropriate transition, staff are encouraged to discuss their plans with their Chairs/Director or Dean to arrive at a mutually agreeable date of termination.

In the absence of a written communication from you, should you not be present on the first day of classes, or should you not return from a leave, your resignation will be considered automatic and your unit administrator will file a Notice of Termination form.
