In response to a global pandemic that has fundamentally changed our workplace, we are continually assessing what will best support employees' needs and help maintain the health and safety of our community. To date, this work has resulted in changes to existing policies and the implementation of new, interim policies, as highlighted here. As with any workplace policy, eligible employees may be entitled to certain COVID-19 related benefits under certain circumstances. Please talk with your manager or your school/unit/department HR Manager to clarify usage.

SLAC employees: Policies may differ from those stated here due to our regulatory environment; please view the policies posted in the SLAC Intranet.
