August 05 Update on COVID Leave

The Families First Corona Virus Response Act is now law and is now in effect, allowing employees to use up to 80 hours of partially paid leave for COVID 19 related qualifying reasons, and is valid from the time period of April 1-December 31, 2020.  After AFGE 2110 filed a grievance on behalf of our bargaining unit members, management responded with guidelines on how to use this leave. Management has determined that they “have the authority to exempt health care workers” from using this leave for qualifying reasons 1, 4,5 and 6, which include childcare coverage due to school closures.  As of May 18, 2020, management will primarily approve this leave solely for reasons 2 and 3; healthcare provider directed you to quarantine or you have symptoms related to COVID-19.  If your leave is denied, you can file a grievance with the director.
