Some employees returning to on-campus work may be working parents and guardians facing childcare concerns and challenges. Supervisors/department heads must make every effort to be supportive and as reasonably flexible as possible in accommodating the needs of these employees. Supportive measures may include the following:
- Frequent well-being check-ins.
- Temporary modified work schedules.
- Leave-specific accommodations (accrued leave, Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), etc.).
- Consideration of on-campus childcare (Y Preschool).
Regardless of the approach, supervisors/department heads are asked to ensure the lines of communication are always open and consistent.
Employees or supervisors with questions may reach out to Human Resources at email@example.com.
