Updated COVID-19 Paid Administrative Leave

April 2, 2020

On March 29, 2020, President Trump extended the federal social distancing guidelines though April 30, 2020. The health and well-being of our employees continues to be our foremost priority during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an effort to continue to limit the gathering of students, faculty and staff, effective immediately, the 128 hours granted to employees on March 23, has been increased to 256 hours for employees unable to work for COVID-19 related reasons.

The provisions remain the same: All employees with a defined time base, academic student employees, and non-represented student assistants, who have been impacted by COVID-19 are eligible. Those excluded are hourly intermittent workers, retired annuitants and special consultants. Exempt employees must take time in full-day increments. Non-exempt employees may take time in hourly increments. Those eligible shall receive a one-time allotment of up to 256 hours of paid administrative leave that can only be used due to COVID-19 related absences. The total hours allotted for leave is dependent on the employee's time base on a pro rata basis.

Please review the FAQs for updated information about the CVD Paid Administrative Leave and the Families First Response Coronavirus Act in the coming days. The Paid Administrative Leave Request Form will be distributed to all supervisors and department chairs for employees to discuss with their supervisors. If you have any questions about your eligibility for the leave, please email HR Director Rebekah Temple or Leaves Specialist Krista Vasquez.
