New process for taking child/elder care leave days


Little Girl Holding Hands With Her Parents

To continue to encourage an environment where staff can care for children or elder family members in their households, effective January 27 through June 30, 2021, full-time regular staff will have access to up to 10 Child/Elder Care Leave Days. These can be used if an eligible staff member is unable to work remotely due to the responsibilities required to care for a child or elder family member in their household. The Child/Elder Care Leave Days are separate from COVID-19 Leave Days. Staff members will be asked to work with their managers in scheduling the days they need. Every effort will be made to meet the request based on operational needs. Once approved, non-exempt staff who are required to come to campus should enter their time in Ultra Time using the ECH (Emergency Childcare) code. Exempt staff members who are required to come to campus should record the time on this electronic form.
