CSB and SJU Faculty and Staff handbook policies on sick leave and the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) will be followed for an employee’s illness, for an employee providing care for an ill family member as defined by these policies, and when an employee is required by a health-care provider to isolate or quarantine.
Special COVID Leave Policy, effective through March 2021:
(date subject to change)
CSB/SJU is offering additional leave at this time for benefit-eligible employees required to stay home from work to self-isolate or quarantine for 1) a positive test when asymptomatic, and 2) for the conditions noted in scenarios 3&4, when an employee is not ill or experiencing symptoms and is unable to do his/her job remotely. Documentation of the status is required (e.g. notice of potential exposure and/or guidance from a health authority).
An employee may request up to 80 hours of paid COVID leave via this form Employee COVID Leave Request. COVID leave will not be deducted from an employee’s sick or vacation leave accrual or affect eligible leave hours for a qualified Family Medical Leave.
Should a second occurrence of isolation/quarantine be necessary and 80 hours COVID leave has been taken, an employee may use accrued sick or vacation leave or take unpaid leave.
