Arrangements for Employees Under Health and Safety Level Four

by Renee Hiller, Director of Human Resources

Michigan Tech has moved to Health and Safety Level Four for the next two weeks. In light of this and the switch to remote instruction by Houghton County K-12 schools, the University asks supervisors to accommodate employees who are able to work from home or those impacted by the K-12 schools’ decision. Such accommodations may include flexible and remote work options, as well as access to leave under the current Emergency Family and Medical Leave Act (EFMLA), which provides paid time off for anyone caring for a child whose school or place of care has been closed due to COVID-19.

More information on these and other options will be provided through the supervisor forums. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact with questions.
