KCTCS Personnel System and UK Personnel System
Employees who are absent from work for three consecutive working days, without proper notification to the immediate supervisor regarding the absence, will be considered as having abandoned their job and resigned their employment at KCTCS “not in good standing”.
Prior to making a determination regarding job abandonment for employees under the KCTCS personnel system, the employee’s immediate supervisor or other designated college or KCTCS official shall make a good faith effort to contact the employee to ensure there are no extenuating circumstances concerning the absences. If the supervisor or designated official is unable to make contact with that employee and/or no extenuating circumstances are identified, the job abandonment designation is then made.
The employment separation decision should be communicated to employees by mail.
