Non-essential employees to continue to work remotely until 4/15/20

Published March 30, 2020


To all employees from Mark Coldren, Associate Vice President, Human Resources

In response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Governor extended his directive for all non-essential State employees for New York State’s agencies and public authorities in every county, to continue to work remotely until April 15

With this directive, UB essential employees will continue to follow their assigned work schedules to ensure we are providing vital services for our students, distance learning, and campus-wide essential operations. 

Please know, that this extension includes New York State funded and Federal Work-study student workers. 

As a reminder, employee guidance shared previously will continue. This includes:

  1. The ability to work remotely.
  2. The ability to redeploy staff and provide alternate assignments.
  3. Continuation of pay full-time and part-time employees currently through April 15, 2020.
