Some employees may need to request temporary work adjustments due to COVID-19.  Under state executive and public health orders, employees who are deemed “Vulnerable Individuals” (also referred to as “people at risk of severe illness from COVID-19”) are not required to work in-person. Vulnerable Individuals are defined as someone who is:

  • 65 years and older
  • Has a chronic lung disease or moderate to severe asthma
  • Has serious heart conditions
  • Is immunocompromised
  • Is pregnant
  • Is determined to be high risk by a licensed healthcare provider

Vulnerable individuals may request a temporary work adjustment through CSU’s Office of Equal Opportunity. Those who live with or are the primary caretaker for a vulnerable individual may request a temporary work adjustment, which will be submitted to the Office of Equal Opportunity and reviewed by CSU’s Human Resources. Employees who are impacted by COVID-19 may have leave options available to them created by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.

Employees with daycare eligible and/or school-age children, or other dependents

Employees with dependents who are enrolled in daycare or school may encounter childcare issues due to COVID-19.

  • Employees with COVID-19-related childcare needs may request a temporary work adjustment which will be submitted to OEO and reviewed by HR.
  • Employees with COVID-19-related childcare needs may also be eligible for expanded Family Medical Leave created by the Families First Coronavirus Response Act.
  • CSU is committed to working with employee-parents directly and with supervisors to ensure as much flexibility for families as feasible. CSU has tasked a working group to help guide this discussion.
