New COVID-19 time off options available this year
Faculty and staff will continue to have additional time off options for absences related to COVID-19 under a new set of policies that went into effect Jan. 1.
The university established the time off programs in response to the Dec. 31 expiration of expanded time off and paid leave options created under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, a federal COVID-19 relief bill passed in March, vice president for university human resources Kristi Darr said in a Dec. 18 message sent to employees.
Details on the new program are available in that message and are also outlined in this Jan. 7 Inside Iowa State story. Employees and supervisors in the College of Design with questions about the new time off options should contact human resources delivery team members Jenn Wiederin or Danielle Michel.
