UC President Michael V. Drake, M.D., has approved an extension through June 30, 2021, to the temporary change to the Absence from Work Policy for policy-covered staff employees, intended to offer relief to parents during the pandemic.
Effective July 1, 2020, through June 30, 2021, policy-covered staff employees may use all of their accrued sick leave if they are unable to work or telework because they are caring for their child while their child is not physically present at their school or place of care (or with their child care provider) due to COVID-19 precautions.
Subject to collective bargaining, a similar expansion of the use of sick leave is available to represented staff employees who have accrued sick leave.
