New Policy HR 5.3051 Temporary Covid-19 Leave after first and final reading
On December 31, 2020 the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) ended the requirement of employers to provide emergency paid sick leave relating to COVID. Although it is no longer mandatory, we believe continuing to offer COVID related sick leave (up to two weeks) to GMSD employees has significant value as they continue to work, in person, during the pandemic.
 
The Temporary COVID-19 Leave policy is aligned to GMSD’s Strategic Plan:
Goal 3: Recruit, Develop, and Retain Exemplary Employees
Objective 3.3: Retain highly skilled employees who are dedicated to developing students’ academic, social, physical, and emotional well-being
·      Strategy 3.3.1: Strengthen the competitive compensation package for all employees
·      Strategy 3.3.2: Provide employees with access to health and wellness options, which promote physical, social, and emotional well-being
·      Strategy 3.3.3: Promote a positive culture environment where employees feel respected and valued
