COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave (CPAL)
Yes. Eligible faculty will have access to COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave.
A retired annuitant or FERP faculty cannot work due to the employee’s own COVID-19-related illness or that of a family member. Can the faculty member use COVID Paid Administrative Leave?
Retired annuitants and FERP faculty are not eligible for COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave but may use their accrued sick leave or request a Personal Leave without Pay.
A .40 FTE faculty member (who teaches two 3-unit courses) cannot work due to the employee’s own COVID-19-related illness or that of a family member or cannot cover their classes due to a childcare commitment. Are they eligible for 256 hours of COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave?
The number of paid administrative leave hours is prorated by time base. For example, a .4 faculty would be eligible for .4 x 256 hours = 102.4 hours of CVD Paid Administrative Leave. Because faculty are exempt employees, CVD Paid Administrative Leave for faculty must be taken in full-day increments.
A faculty member 65 years or older or who has underlying chronic medical conditions needs more than 256 hours of sick leave due to their own COVID-19-related illness. Does their sick leave end when COVID Paid Administrative Leave runs out?
Previous leave provisions announced by the Chancellor on March 17, 2020, provided indefinite leave for employees who have underlying chronic medical conditions and/or are 65 years or older. Paid administrative leave will continue until the faculty member can return to remote work.
