Mar. 17, 2021: Employees Will Be Granted Time Off for COVID-19 Vaccination

Effective March 12, 2021, under recently signed legislation, employees will be granted up to four hours of excused leave per injection that will not be charged against any other leave the employee has earned or accrued.

Employees are entitled to a leave of absence for COVID-19 vaccinations which are scheduled during the employee’s regular work hours. Employees who schedule vaccinations outside their regular work schedules do so on their own time. For example, employees are not granted compensatory time off for scheduled vaccinations that occur on pass days or holidays.
