COVID-19 Leaves

COVID-19 CSU Temporary Paid Leaves

CSU Chancellor White has granted non-telecommuting workers additional paid leave (NTWL) of up to 304 hours for benefits eligible employees who have exhausted CPAL. This additional paid leave is only available to employees who cannot work remotely based on their duties and who have exhausted all available CPAL. This leave is subject to management approval and expires on June 30, 2020 or sooner if the employee is scheduled to return to work on site. Employees, please work with your manager/appropriate administrator to request and report NTWL. 

CPAL– Effective April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020

CSU Chancellor White has granted up to 256 hours of paid administrative leave (CPAL) to eligible employees for whom telecommuting is not operationally feasible and are unable to work for qualifying COVID-19 related reasons. Employees should work with their manager/appropriate administrator to request CPAL. Managers/appropriate administrators, please contact leaves office at employee-leaves@cpp.edu.

FFCRA – Effective April 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020

In addition to the CSU temporary paid leave programs above, the federal Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) provides eligible employees up to 80 hours of paid sick leave when an employee is unable to work (or telework) due to qualifying COVID-19 related health reasons. These hours may also be used to care for a child whose school or child care provider is closed or unavailable for COVID-19 related reasons.

The FFCRA also provides up to twelve (12) weeks of expanded family and medical leave (FML), of which ten (10) weeks are paid, when an employee is unable to work (or telework) due to caring for a child whose school or child care provider is closed or unavailable for COVID-19 related reasons. The FFCRA provides up to 2/3 pay for these 10 weeks; however, Chancellor White has granted full-pay for FFCRA FML. CPAL will normally be exhausted prior to requesting FFCRA. Employees, please contact leaves office at employee-leaves@cpp.edu.
