1-11-1. Resignation. (a) Each employee wishing to resign in good standing shall file with the appointing authority, at least two weeks before the employee's last day at work, a written resignation stating the date it will become effective and the reasons for leaving. If the employee fails to give the required written notice of resignation as specified in this subsection, the appointing authority may have a statement concerning this failure inserted in the employee's official personnel record. Any appointing authority may consider the fact that a person did not give the required notice when the person resigned from earlier employment with the state to be grounds for refusal to employ that person.
(b) With the approval of the appointing authority, an employee may withdraw a resignation.
(c) An appointing authority may consider any unauthorized absence from work for a period of five consecutive working days for which the employee does not provide a satisfactory explanation to be abandonment of the job and a presumed resignation. Before terminating an employee for a presumed resignation, the appointing authority shall make a reasonable effort to obtain a satisfactory explanation from the employee.
