Note:  If an hourly employee is resigning under normal circumstances, use the reason, “End of Casual Employment” (ECE) rather than “Resignation” (RES).  If it isn’t normal circumstances you may choose another action reason.

Do not use “Other” (OTH) unless you consult your campus HR representative.

Each Action Reason has an “Eligibility for Rehire” code so it is important to use the correct reason.
