Remote Work: Making a Good Option Even Better

Harassment and Discrimination Prevention and Response During COVID-19:

"No single person or group of people are more likely than others to spread COVID-19...Stigma hurts everyone by creating more fear or anger toward ordinary people instead of focusing on the disease that is causing the problem. Stigma can also make people more likely to hide symptoms or illness, keep them from seeking health care immediately, and prevent individuals from adopting healthy behaviors. This means that stigma can make it more difficult to control the spread of an outbreak."
If you are a victim (or a witness) of harassment or discrimination for any reason, please contact Terri Frank, Lisa Schaufenbuel, or Eric Roesler.

 Needing Time Away from Work

As of December 31, 2020, COVID leave and Extended FMLA expired.

Request/Coordinate Flexible Time

Supervisors are and have been encouraged to support and allow flexible working hours where appropriate and possible. If you are interested in changing your schedule or in working alternative hours to make up time away, speak with your supervisor.

Taking Leave

If you need time away from work for yourself or to take care of a family member due to having COVID or related to COVID situations (ex: school is closed on a particular day of the week and you need to take care of your child), use the appropriate type of leave. The leave policies are listed below. You may take vacation, personal holiday, or a floating holiday for any reason. The sick leave policy outlines the specific reasons for using this type of leave.

Non-instructional Staff Leave Without Pay (LWOP)

Individuals interested in taking leave without pay to support the department and/or university budgeting may do so. The supervisor will review the request and take business needs into consideration for the approval in general and the dates requested.

Things to consider prior to requesting leave without pay:

  • An LWOP eave without pay may impact benefits, including leave accruals and WRS creditable years of service and earnings. Review the resources on the UW System Leave of Absence page to understand the implications fully.
  • An LWOP without pay is a voluntary option and during times of consecutive or intermittent furlough, the requested leave is in addition to assigned furlough.
