Where operationally possible, FMHS employees should be working remotely. In addition, employees who have any pre-existing conditions which makes them more vulnerable to infection, must be encouraged to work from home where operational requirements permit. Where you are granted permission to work from home please capture leave of absence on the HR leave system for the University to ensure that there is a proper record of your leave.
There are a number of queries, concerns and questions which have been raised by staff. While we hope that these protocols address those issues, we accept that it may not answer all the concerns. The underlying principles are maintaining the operational integrity of the University as well as the health and safety of staff and remaining flexible as the situation changes.
To the extent therefore that these protocols do not address specific situations and scenarios, the appropriate mechanism would be for any staff member to raise this via their line manager who in turn will pass it on to Human Resources (HR).
