This Employee Termination of Assignment (TERMA) guide for EPAF approvers applies to approving the termination of an employee's current assignment from a specific department. For all EPAF guides, refer to the Information for EPAF Users web page.

EPAFs submitted after the deadline will be paid on the next available pay period. For a special check request, please contact Payroll.
