Subject: Follow-Up on Designated Employees
As a follow-up to the announcements regarding Monday's and Tuesday's cancellations, here is a reminder about employee emergency event status. In the event of inclement weather events such as we are facing with Hurricane Sandy, only designated employees should report to work. Designated employees are the University's first responders in emergencies. All non-designated employees are expected to remain at home in order to allow our emergency services personnel to best do their jobs.
If you do not know if you are designated, check under "My Information" in Employee Self-Service. You can get to Employee Self-Service from the Human Resources home page (choose the SSTL button in the top right corner). If you have questions about your designation, contact your supervisor. FAQs and more information about emergency event status are available on the Emergency Event Status page.
Non-designated employees who remain home during an agency closing will not be expected to use annual leave. More specific time and leave recording instructions will be addressed in a future email.
