Division/School leadership will create return to workplace plans to include accounting for the number of personnel in the department, physical work setting to allow for proper social distancing, work activities needing to be prioritized, and level of service needed to provide to constituents as campus begins to open as part of the five-phase plan.
Employees should receive communication from their supervisor regarding the anticipated date of return to on-campus work, including a timeline to prepare for that transition. Additionally, in preparation of returning to campus, employees will also need to complete the e-learning for TSU's Return to On-Campus Work prior to an employee's return to campus.
Employees are not required to disclose if they are in a high-risk category based upon preexisting medical condition. If an employee considers him or herself to be high-risk for COVID-19 based on the CDC guidelines and have concerns regarding returning to on-campus work, the employee may voluntarily discuss with his or her manager or may request an accommodation from HR. If an employee voluntarily discloses, this information will be kept confidential in accordance with TSU personnel policies.
Supervisors, in coordination with HR, will work with employees who are requesting accommodations to care for self or a family member with high-risk conditions to discuss options that support a healthy and safe work environment while determining ways to complete position responsibilities. Some employees may be permitted to continue with telework arrangements through extended phases of return to campus with periodic reviews of return to campus dates for individual positions.
