- Voluntary Phased Separation Program - This program is designed to give eligible employees an opportunity for a phased approach to separation. It allows individuals to move into non-employment or retirement gradually through a voluntary reduction in work and commensurate reduction in pay. It also enables departments to plan for the replacement of long-term colleagues in advance of their actual separation. For additional information, see the complete program description and application below.
