Based on current CDC Guidance, employees who are older and/or who have underlying medical conditions are not automatically
entitled to paid administrative leave if they are not able to work remotely.
Employees who are able to effectively work remotely should be afforded the opportunity
to continue. However, employees who are not able to effectively work remotely and
do not have either an approved leave or an approved accommodation through OHR, should
be included in department repopulation plans. In addition, if they are in a position
which has been designated as “essential,” they may be required to report to work prior
to implementation of the repopulation plan.
Employees who have medical concerns regarding their return to work including, but
not limited to, being older and/or an underlying medical condition, should contact
Melanie Hobbs (email@example.com) in the Office of Human Resources (OHR) regarding eligible leaves and/or other options
which may be available to them. Employees with medical concerns are able to request
accommodations through the campus’ normal ADA interactive process and can initiate that process by contacting Melanie Hobbs (firstname.lastname@example.org).
