Student Employees

Additional information on the changes to Administrative Leave can be found in these HR Messages.

The UNC System Office issued additional guidance that affects leave provisions and Administrative Leave COVID-19 effective June 1, 2020, and continuing until revised or rescinded. Under these revisions, temporary and student workers will no longer be eligible for administrative leave and will only be paid for hours worked, either onsite or teleworking. If any of the FFCRA qualifying events apply, temporary and student workers may be eligible for leave under that provision. Refer to the FFCRA website for more details.
