Summary of Changes/Comments

December 22, 2020 - The Termination of Appointment policy is now available in Spanish. To access the document, click on the Spanish language tab.

January 01, 2018 - The new policy highlights that the approval of agreed separations remains discretionary and is not an entitlement. The policy also provides a sliding payment scale for additional discretionary amounts that UNDP could pay in cases of agreed separation of staff.

As of 1 January 2018, the 'Termination of Appointment' policy supersedes the Termination Indemnity policy and the guidelines in the UNDP Agreed Separation Arrangements. Terminations of appointment and separations resulting from an approved Rationale for Change prior to 1 January 2018 will continue to follow the UNDP Agreed Separation Arrangements.
