To All Employees: —– (Supervisor for those employees who do not have access to email please distribute this notice and post in the break rooms).
As promised, this is a status update communication. You are probably aware that Congress has introduced a Bill to provide paid leave and more. However, we recognize your norms and daily lives are being affected in advance of that bill being passed into law. Haynes/The Dump is continuing to responsibly assess the impact of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and take measure to address and support our employees. With multiple states and jurisdictions closing schools and other facilities we understand that in addition to caring for your own personal health situation you may also be challenged with taking care of dependent children and other family members needing your assistance. As a result we have further adjusted our Temporary Sick Pay Practice. Effective immediately —
Sick Leave: Employees can use the temporary sick pay available to them to care for themselves and/or a family member for any absence related to the impact of COVA-19. Please ensure you are using this paid leave responsibly and following normal absence reporting procedures, contact your immediate supervisor as soon as you are aware a COVA-19 related absence will occur but at minimum within 15 minutes of your regularly scheduled reporting time. Supervisors please code this time in TimeClock Plus with a note in the description that the absence is related to COVA-19, this will help accurately record and ensure your employee is paid as appropriate.
CORRECTION – Supervisors in Time Clock Plus note ‘temporary sick pay practice’
We will continue to monitor changes and assess options. Each of us must make the best decision for ourselves and our families during these challenging times. We wanted to highlight again, if you are sick stay home. If you experience symptoms of respiratory illness (fever, coughing or shortness of breath), please inform Human Resources (HR) at [757 552-1500] and contact your health care provider.
We remain committed to provide updates and to support you as best we can, just as we know you will do the same for our company. Again, if you have any other questions or concerns you want to discuss/report please contact Human Resources.
Take care of yourselves and each other.
