INFORMATION FOR FACULTY AND STAFF
The presence of COVID-19 in Virginia is creating stress for all of us, not only because of the outbreak itself but because of the consequences, such as the closing of K-12 schools. The Commonwealth of Virginia’s Department of Human Resource Management is working closely with the VCCS and all of Virginia’s Community Colleges to address the needs and concerns of all employees.
Faculty and Staff FAQs
It is our objective to provide services to our community and students. In cases where operational decisions have affected available hours of work, your supervisor may also consider whether an alternate work schedule and/or telework is appropriate. Unfortunately, not all positions will be suitable for telework or alternative work arrangements. If you or an immediate family member are being treated for an illness directly related to COVID-19, you may be eligible for leave benefits under the DHRM Public Health Emergency Leave. Contact Beth Lunde at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
The college adopted an updated policy on alternative work arrangements on March 16. As a first step, the supervisor evaluates whether a position is eligible for telework, and whether the individual in that position has the resources and ability to perform it remotely. If the position and employee are eligible, a detailed teleworking agreement is signed by the supervisor and employee, subject to approval by the appropriate President’s Cabinet member. Additional information, resources and the required forms are posted on the Human Resources section of Inside TCC.
Anyone who has plans to travel in the upcoming weeks/months is encouraged to pro-actively reach out to the event organizers and ask if the event has been cancelled or moved online. Additionally, regular follow-up should be performed to ensure the traveler is up to date on the status of the event.
Obtain refunds where possible: You are responsible for pursuing conference registration refunds as well as rental car, hotel, and airline refunds upon notification of the event change.
Non-refundable costs: Documentation should be forwarded to your respective Business Manager. The email should contain the date you were notified of the event cancellation/change in delivery and a description of the efforts you made to seek a refund from the airline or hotel. The email should also contain the amount of the refund you are requesting.
Employees with a fully approved Pre-Approval in Chrome River who incurred non-refundable costs and pursued appropriate/timely cancellation will be reimbursed. If an airline issues a credit to the employee, the cost will not be reimbursed, except possibly for the cancellation fee.
