Employees working remotely are expected to work their normal shift hours and request and report leave as normal according to their departmental procedures.
In the event of any work schedule changes (i.e. shift work schedules, planned or un-planned leave) during this period of remote work, the following guidelines are to be followed:
Any work shift/schedule changes and planned leave must be requested and approved in advance by your supervisor, in accordance with standard applicable University policies or published guidelines specific to the University’s COVID-19 response.
If you need to request time off for a personal matter, you are required to obtain prior approval from your supervisor and report annual leave for the hours you do not work.
If you become ill with a non-COVID-19 illness and cannot work remotely, or have a medical appointment, you are required to notify your supervisor and you are required to report sick leave for the hours you do not work.
Quarantine and Isolation situations where the employee is not able to work: Notify your supervisor immediately if any of the following situations occur. Items a. through d. you may be eligible for Emergency Paid Sick Leave (E-PSL) under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
Are subject to a quarantine/isolation order related to COVID-19
Have been advised by a health care provider to self-quarantine due to COVID-19
Are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
Are caring for an individual subject to quarantine or isolation
If you are unable to work due to providing care for a child due to the closure of the child’s preschool program, elementary, or secondary school, or childcare center related to COVID-19, employees may be eligible for Emergency Family and Medical Leave (E-FML) under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. NOTE: Due to their critical need, UNM employees working at the HSC and others performing critical campus operations – employees of UNMPD, SHAC, SRS, and all other emergency management, public works and utilities employees, regardless of their duty station – are excluded from coverage under E-FML.
You are not required to complete UNM's daily symptom screening survey on those days you are normally scheduled off from work or if you are on an approved leave, planned or unplanned and only if it is for the entire work shift.
