Return-to-campus packets and face coverings

Everyone will be expected to wear a face covering that covers your nose and mouth whenever you are indoors on the University’s campus, including The Dubois Center at UNC Charlotte Center City, unless you are alone in a personal space. Masks should meet CDC guidelines. Students living on campus will receive their kits at check-in. Other students may pick up their kits on campus starting Oct. 1 by East Deck and the quad outside of the College of Health and Human Services and the College of Education. A 49er ID card will be needed. Any student not picking up their kit will have it mailed to them. Faculty and staff kits have been delivered via interdepartment mail. 

Student Employees

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

The UNC System Office recently 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that affects leave provisions and Administrative Leave COVID-19 effective June 1, 2020, and continuing until revised or rescinded.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.

Families First Coronavirus Response Act 

The federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) was enacted to address the impact of COVID-19 in the United States. This includes two types of leave that apply to the University and provide paid leave benefits to eligible University employees. This regulation is effective April 1, 2020, and expires December 31, 2020. More information and resources are available on HR’s FFCRA webpage.
