Paid Administrative Leave for Employees with School Children Affected by Coronavirus Closures

March 13, 2020

Quick Read - Employees now granted up to 14 days paid administrative leave who have to stay home because their children's schools have closed due to coronavirus concerns.

Dear Colleagues,

With local schools temporarily closing due to coronavirus concerns, many of our employees will have to take time off work to provide childcare. We will now grant up to 14 days of paid administrative leave for employees who have to stay home, and who are unable to work remotely, because they must provide childcare to their children whose schools have closed due to coronavirus concerns. Managers and supervisors are asked to grant their employees permission for these requests.

thank you,
