6.2 Notice of Termination of Employment
This clause does not apply to casual staff or staff serving a period of probation.
6.2.1 All decisions to discipline or terminate the employment of a staff member must be in accordance with this Agreement.
6.2.2 Termination of employment means termination at the initiative of the University.
6.2.3 If the University seeks to terminate your employment, you will be provided with notice as set out below or as specified in your contract of employment, whichever is the greater, except where termination of employment occurs for reasons of serious misconduct as defined in clause 6.3, or incapacity to perform duties, where notice will be provided in accordance with clause 6.6.12, of this Agreement.
6.2.4 In addition to this notice, if you are over 45-years of age at the time of giving notice and you have at least two (2) years continuous service with the University, you will receive an additional one (1) week of notice.
