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.
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.
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.
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 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.
