Getting a COVID vaccine / booster is not a requirement for staff, but it is something we are encouraging. To make it as easy as possible we will be granting Administrative Leave time to staff who have scheduled a COVID vaccination / booster during regularly scheduled work hours. This is essentially the same procedure we used for the spring vaccinations. Please check with your health care provider about when you will be eligible for a COVID booster shot.
For non-exempt staff, if you have scheduled a COVID vaccination / booster during your regularly scheduled work hours you will be granted up to 1.5 hours (90 minutes) of Administrative Leave to cover time away from work. This leave can only be used for time taken to get a COVID vaccination. Please coordinate your appointment with your supervisor to determine if it works with the department’s work schedule. When you leave work to get vaccinated you will clock out and clock back in when you return to work. You must send an email to email@example.com in order for record the Administrative Leave to be recorded on your timecard. If you are gone more than 90 minutes, you will use personal leave time to cover any additional time.
Exempt staff will also notify their supervisor of any schedule adjustments but will not be granted additional leave to cover time missed for the vaccine.
If you have questions about how this leave works, please contact Human Resources.
