NUMBER: 8-9-4 APPROVED DATE: 07-05-2005

PURPOSE: To provide guidelines for recognition of employees who resign or retire from Trident Technical College, and for hosting other unofficial (non-College sponsored) events for employees.



The Human Resources Department staff organizes an annual retirement event and selects retiree gifts on behalf of the College. The Human Resources Department staff coordinates this event with the President's office. The retirement event and retiree gifts are eligible Employee Quality Assurance activities pursuant to TTC Policy 6-15-0.


    Employees may recognize an employee who is leaving the College through retirement or resignation with an activity or drop-in. Event planners may invite Trident Technical College employees and the honored employee's immediate family (spouse and children). Employees may also arrange other social events, including but not limited to showers, birthday or holiday parties. These unofficial activities must take place:
    1. during a one-hour lunch break; or
    2. between 4:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m.
    Refreshments or other costs associated with unofficial activities may not be funded from departmental or any other College budgets including grants. The College's Culinary Arts department may not cater these unofficial activities.
    Event planners and employees attending on campus, unofficial activities must have prior approval from their supervisors.
