Separations - Involuntary



To terminate a staff employee for poor performance or disciplinary reasons, or to separate a staff employee in limited position or contract appointment where there is a specific end date.  For student employee separations, open a Student Employee Separation request. For academic appointments, contact Academic Personnel.

Customer's Responsibility

Submit ServiceNow ticket as soon as decision has been made to separate employee. If employee is being separated for poor performance or disciplinary reasons, provide justification and HR approval for termination. DO NOT make changes to employee's timesheet in Time Reporting System (TRS). Supervisor is to provide timesheet information through separation date.

ACT's Responsibility

ACT will help prepare paperwork and assist with off-boarding employee. ACT will submit separation paperwork and documentation to Human Resources Payroll Center (HRPC) for processing.

Target Processing Time

Next Steps in the Process

HRPC will process the separation and submit to UCPath Center.


Most final paychecks will be received via direct deposit on the next regularly scheduled pay period.

Processing times are directed towards ACT's efforts only and do not include time waiting for approvals, waiting for additional information from customers/vendors, central offices processing times, and UCLA processing times.
