Terms of Employment and Appointment
UMMHC-Employed Faculty are subject to the employment terms and conditions defined in their letter of offer and their employment contract with UMMHC, and by UMMHC policies and procedures. These individuals may also provide services to UMMS. The Faculty appointment of UMMHC-Employed Faculty is governed by the policies in the Academic Personnel Policy ("APP", Doc. T93-022, as amended).
If the individual’s employment agreement with UMMHC is terminated for any reason, their Faculty appointment and any services that the individual may be providing to UMMS also end coterminously, unless the individual has a new or continuing written agreement with UMMS or is a Tenured Faculty Member. UMMHC-Employed Tenured Faculty Members transfer employment to UMMS on termination of employment by UMMHC (APP, Section 4.3).
Termination of Appointment
The Faculty appointment of a Non-Tenured UMMHC-Employed Faculty Member may be terminated “Not For Cause” at any time for any reason that is not unlawful, by the chair, SOM Dean, or GSN Dean (as applicable) following notification of the Provost’s designee for faculty affairs and on prior written notification to the individual at least 30 days prior to the date of termination of appointment.
The Faculty appointment of a Non-Tenured UMMHC-Employed Faculty Member may be terminated effective immediately for “Cause” (APP, Section 1.9) at any time by the chair, SOM Dean, or GSN Dean (as applicable), with review and approval by the SOM Dean (if applicable) and Provost on written notification to the Faculty Member.
