Should employees become ill or otherwise be unavailable to perform work, they are required to enter accrued time for absences from work duties during those times and notifying their supervisor.
Staffing Patterns Being Assessed for Remainder of Summer, Fall Semester
The university is currently analyzing its staffing needs for both the remainder of the summer and the fall semester. It will be necessary for some staff positions to be on campus to help the university with such things as preparing dorm rooms for the fall semester, restarting critical research endeavors, or maintaining core infrastructure. As the fall semester commences, there will be a need for some staff to be on campus to support our students.
On-campus work may look different—with the university exploring different options to lessen the spread of the novel coronavirus. Importantly, many staff members will be asked to continue to work remotely through the end of the calendar year.
Through the entire pandemic, the university has been in daily communication with its union partners. In the coming weeks, the university will be having many discussions about its reopening plans with the various labor unions that represent employees. These discussions will bring additional clarity on how the reopening will be operationalized for university staff. As details are finalized, they will be added to this section of the reopening website.
