This Employee Termination of Employment (TERME) guide applies to the official termination of an employee from the University. If an employee has more than one active assignment, submit separate Employee Termination of Assignment (TERMA) EPAFs to terminate those assignments first before submitting a TERME EPAF.

If the employee's current assignment (not employment) is being terminated, an Employee Termination of Assignment (TERMA) EPAF should be submitted instead. For all EPAF guides, refer to the Information for EPAF Users web page.


Generally, EPAFs must be submitted about two weeks before the end of a pay period. Adhere to the EPAF Approval Deadline column of Payroll's Pay Schedule table to ensure timely and accurate payroll for employees. EPAFs submitted after the deadline will be paid on the next available pay period. For a special check request, please contact Payroll.
