The president may change the job description and/or job duties or reassign an exempt employee to another position at any time.

Nothing in this policy shall be construed to guarantee continued employment or tenure status.

The written notice of termination shall be furnished at least 30 calendar days prior to the effective date of the termination. Such notice shall be delivered directly to the employee during working hours, or if this is not possible, mailed by certified letter to the employee’s last known address.

Prior to separation, the affected employee will be offered the opportunity to request a meeting with the college president and the human resources director to respond to the termination decision. You may request this meeting by contacting the human resources director.
