  • Employees who are not yet enabled to work from home and are unable to come into the office will be granted paid administrative leave in circumstances where they are caring for their children when schools or places of care are cancelled. As soon as tools are made available, the expectation is that employees in this situation will make every effort to begin working from home.
  • In addition, any employee who is awaiting COVID-19 test results, or caring for themselves or household members who have tested positive for COVID-19, will also be granted paid administrative leave.

Both of these changes are retroactive to March 14. Employees can use paid administrative leave without first exhausting their personal time off benefits.
