COVID-19 Response Information


Please note: The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) expired on December 31, 2020.

Effective January 1, 2021, FFCRA-designated leave will no longer be available.  Employees with coronavirus-related leave needs may still qualify for traditional leave under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which provides leave for various qualifying circumstances including an employee’s own serious illness or medical need or that of a qualifying family member. Employees are also encouraged to use covid-19-liberal leave, accrued sick, vacation in accordance with policy as needs arise. The Office of Human Resources continues to encourage employees and supervisors to implement flextime and telecommute arrangements to the extent possible, to ensure business continuity while recognizing and meeting employee needs.

The OHR is providing needed HR related information for all members of the University community during this time of modified status. This information will be continually updated so please check back periodically.
