Conditions for Work Arrangements

Brandon University encourages you to work from home if you are able, as we ramp up efforts to maximize social distancing and to reduce the number of people who must be on campus during the coronavirus pandemic. Working from home will not be possible for all employees. However, those who are able to work from home will be helping to protect those who remain on campus.

Please use these conditional statements to determine the best working arrangements for each role.

  1. If member is well and is able to work from home: work from home plan to be established with manager (normal pay provisions apply).
  2. If member is well and is unable to work from home: member to report to work (discuss preventative measures with manager to maintain safety) and normal pay provisions apply or, if not reporting to work, banked time, vacation or LWOP provisions apply.
  3. If member is quarantined (self-isolation), is well, and is able to work from home: work from home plan to be established with manager (normal pay provisions apply).
  4. If member is quarantined (self-isolation), is well, and is not able to work from home: sick leave provisions apply (when exhausted, banked time, vacation or LWOP applies).
  5. If member is quarantined (self-isolation) and is not well: sick leave provisions apply (when exhausted, banked time, vacation or LWOP applies).
  6. If member is required to provide care for children and is able to work from home: work from home plan, with flexible work hour considerations, to be established with manager (normal pay provisions apply).
  7. If member is required to provide care for children and is unable to work from home: care for leave provisions apply (when exhausted, sick leave, banked time, vacation or LWOP applies).

We encourage a flexible approach to all work arrangements. Please discuss your options with your supervisor.
