Employee and Human Resources Considerations
In addition to area-specific directives, certain policies and protocols will be in place for all University employees. These include conducting business and meetings via electronic means when possible, following social distancing guidelines when in-person meetings are required, and adjusting work schedules so all employees are not entering a building at the same time other employees or students are arriving if social distance cannot be maintained.
Managers and supervisors will also be trained and empowered to adjust and apply health and safety protocols specific to their areas of responsibility and will be equipped to address work-related COVID-19 information and concerns. Managers and supervisors will communicate all applicable return-to-campus information to members of their teams. Employees will return to work as needed and as safeguards and other protective mechanisms are in place. The University will follow current processes for employees who may request work modifications or accommodations.
