June 26th, 2020 - USG Clarifies Guidance on COVID-19 Accommodations for Employees Over Age 65
We are pleased to report that we have received clarification from the USG regarding accommodation requests for employees over the age of 65. The updated advice states that those over 65 qualify for an accommodation, without having to provide documentation of having an underlying medical condition. We know that many of our faculty and staff members are concerned about this issue and we reiterated your concerns, as did others from across the System.
If you previously submitted a request on this basis, the HR team will revisit your request based on this updated guidance and will notify you and your supervisor. For those that have not submitted requests yet, we ask that you please do so before July 10. The USG Request for Accommodations form can be found here. If you have questions regarding COVID-19 accommodations, please contact Venus Frank or Carole Clerie.
