Return-to-campus packets and face coverings

When classes resume in the fall, 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. Before the start of classes, the University will provide return-to-campus packets to all faculty, staff and students that contain reusable and disposable face coverings, hand sanitizer and other items. Disposable face coverings will also be available in campus vending machines. Stay tuned for more information.

Fall FAQs now available

We know you have many questions as you prepare to return to campus in the fall. We have started a fall semester FAQ on the Niner Nation Cares website, and we will continue to add more answers as we have them.  As we get closer to the start of classes, the Niner Nation Cares website will become a centralized source for the latest information. We are committed to keeping you updated, and we will provide more complete return-to-campus guidance to you no later than mid-July.

Student Employees

Additional information on the changes to Administrative Leave can be found in the May 28 HR Message.

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affects leave provisions and Administrative Leave COVID-19 effective June 1, 2020, and continuing until revised or rescinded.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