An employee may resign at any time he wishes to do so, subject to the following conditions:

(a) Notice. The employee must notify his department head, in writing, of his resignation at least 2 weeks prior to the date of his separation unless the department head waives such requirement.

(b) Withdrawal. Once submitted, the resignation is binding upon the employee and it may be withdrawn only with the department head’s consent.

(c) In Lieu of Separation for Cause. An employee may resign with prejudice in lieu of removal or while issuance of charges leading to removal are pending. In such instances, the department head must indicate the abnormal nature of the resignation on the request for personnel action.

(d) Rehire. An employee who resigns without prejudice is eligible for reinstatement at any time, assuming an opening exists and he has completed his probationary period. If he has not completed the probationary period or if, within the 5 years preceding the date of his current application, he resigned from ASG in lieu of removal, he will compete through regular competitive channels and if selected shall serve a new probationary period.
