COVID-19 Leave Options Due to Daycare/School Closure
If a faculty member is unable to do their work due to a COVID-19 day care/school closure that requires them to be home with their dependent(s), they may work remotely if operationally feasible. If demands of dependent care make it impossible for faculty to work, even when work is remote, they may request paid leave: 1) Emergency Paid Sick Leave (EPSL) and/or 2) Expanded Family and Medical Leave (EFML). Both of these leaves are available to eligible individuals through December 31, 2020.
