Effective Date of Retirement With Regard to Departmental Voting Rights

[Advice to a member of the Division 3/3/2006]

Senate faculty retain full voting rights on personnel matters until the last day of the academic quarter of their retirement, the separation date for payroll purposes notwithstanding.

For example, a faculty member retiring at the end of the winter quarter would retain full rights through the end of the winter quarter.  This is true even if the payroll separation date is February 28 -- that date being an artifact of a 9-month salary being paid over 12 months, so that employment for 2 quarters would lead to 8 monthly payments for the academic year.
