We have learned very quickly there are many adjustments, sacrifices, and challenges that come with starting a new school year in the age of COVID-19. For further information about returning to the workplace and for HR accommodation forms, please visit the Return to Regis section on Regis Resources.
Sick days may be used for the first five business days you are in quarantine or isolation and should be entered into Paycom. If you are medically unable to work for more than five business days, you will need to apply for short-term disability through Guardian, as well as submit a request form to Human Resources. For questions regarding sick leave and short-term disability, please contact Jessica Szymczak Roy in Human Resources. Please do not provide any medical information directly to your supervisor.
Do staff need to use their break time to attend weekly COVID-19 testing appointments in Regis Community Health Services?
No, these brief testing appointments are an employer requirement for on-campus work; therefore staff do not need to use their break time to participate in testing taking place in Regis Community Health Services. However, time missed to attend an off-campus COVID-19 testing appointment with another entity must be charged to Medical Leave (Sick Time) or occur during the lunch hour as it would necessitate additional time away from work.
Student facing departments are expected to provide services to students on campus in an effective manner. This may include split schedules or other arrangement for staff. Staff may request accommodation for remote work. This request should be through their direct supervisor and the Department of Human Resources.
Faculty who are immunocompromised or have other concerns regarding teaching on campus need to request accommodation from their individual program director, dean, and the Department of Human Resources.
Regis College is planning for a full, in-person opening of campus for fall 2021. Please reach out to your manager/supervisor/dean directly to discuss adjustments to work schedules.
Employees working in an open environment must be sure to maintain wear a mask when other coworkers are present.
Plastic facial shields will be available to those with a need for such equipment.
Faculty and staff should clean their workstations and shared areas frequently and diligently. The university will continue to employ office cleaning, but employees should be vigilant about cleaning high use areas.
Regis College recognizes this is a challenging time for employees and their families. COVID-19 has presented many unforeseen complications that have forced our community to adjust rapidly.
Special accommodation requests should be made to the HR Benefits Manager. All such accommodation requests need to be approved by the Department of Human Resources. Staffing options can be found in the Regis College Return to Campus Guide for Faculty and Staff Employees available on Regis Resources.
Meetings can be held in person, and all attendees will be required to wear a face covering. Technology should be available in the meeting room to accommodate participants choosing to attend remotely.
