Office of Human Resources

  • Dear employees:

    On Friday, April 3, 2020, we announced that we were following the Governor’s extension of Paid Administrative Leave through April 10, 2020 for all non-APSCUF employees.  We know this is a stressful time and want to provide you with additional information regarding what will happen after April 10, 2020.

    For those employees performing essential services on campus or telecommuting they will continue to do so.  For employees who are currently not working or unable to telecommute, the System will also follow the Governor’s direction for the leave extension.

    Beginning April 11, 2020, those employees currently not working or unable to telecommute will have the option to use their own leave or unpaid leave while maintaining health benefits. This is an alternative to furloughs that allows employees to keep their health benefits and have flexibility from a range of leave options that are best for them.

    We know that this is a difficult and stressful time and the decisions we face are equally difficult as we work to fight the spread of the virus. If you have any questions regarding your work status, please do not hesitate to reach out to your Associate Vice President or Department Director. For those impacted employees, additional information is also below.

    Thank you for everything you do for our universities and our communities.

    Employee Information: University work locations will continue to operate but only to provide life sustaining operations until at least April 30, 2020, in order to slow the spread of COVID-19.


    Administrative leave due to COVID-19 will be extended through Friday, April 10, 2020: Employees who are reporting to work or are telecommuting should continue to do so.
