I gave notice of more than a week, specifically to the end of the pay period, in a probationary term/temp federal job. I gave that notice in an email to my immediate supervisor. Most people are out of the office teleworking, and I asked if I needed to do anything else, and the admin point of contact in the office did not know.

She said it is all handled by the echelon above the office and to ask them.

No one sent me any paperwork or written response to the resignation letter that I emailed.

I had exit interviews with two senior staff members.

Do I need to get some type of written acknowledgement on the resignation?

So far, no one responded in writing and I do not want to be accused of "abandoning" the job, if I am supposed to get some acknowledgement from HR.

The HR people are in an office across the country from here.

They requested my personal email address but have not sent anything so far and tomorrow is the last day.

I guess I'll try calling them and also sent an email saying I was directed to check with them to see if anything else if required of me.

Since I'm probationary (despite having already passed probation in three different federal agencies in the past), can they just terminate me since I gave them notice??

I'm leaving to take private sector employment pending another eventual and possible government job. That could taken months though.

Thank you for any insights.

Technically, there isn't much paperwork to be sent, really only need a forwarding address, which is the email you supplied. I would keep a copy of your resignation email, just so you can verify if need be. As for being able to terminate you, no, they won't be able to do that. There is a good amount of paperwork from the HR side to terminate some even under probation. The supervisor would have to submit documentation requesting the termination as well as the rationale.

You are an employee, not an indentured servant; you are welcome to leave with or without notice...

Ideally email the supervisor indicating the resignation and carbon copy a personal email address, for record of notice of resignation.

You should get a final SF52 showing you resigned.

I requested the form but they did not provide it yet. I'm following up again. They orally accepted it but there is nothing in writing.
