An employee may resign at any time subject to the following conditions:

(a) Notice. The employee must notify his or her department head, in writing, of his or her resignation at least 2 weeks prior to the date of 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 Once submitted, the resignation is binding upon the employee and it may be withdrawn only with the department head’s consent.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 or she has completed the probationary period. If the employee has not completed the probationary period or if, within the five years preceding the date of his or her current application, he or she resigned from ASPA in lieu of removal, he or she will compete through regular competitive channels and if selected shall serve a new probationary period.
