In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SCC continues its commitment to its employees’ health and safety. The College has already rolled out two additional leave plans, and both comply and/or exceed the federal requirements of the recently passed Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA).
1. Reduction in Hours Leave (exceeds FFCRA) is eligible upon request by supervisors for employees who have faced a reduction in their work hours due to the College’s modified operations or the employees’ inability to work remotely/telework.
2. Temporary Emergency Leave (complies with FFCRA) is eligible for all employees who require leave due to a COVID-19 related illness or quarantine order for themselves or family member or to care for the employee’s child. Child is defined by the law as the employee’s son or daughter, or the employee serves as a proxy parent to the child. The leave amount is based on the employees’ average hours worked in a two-week period.
Additionally, the College will offer a third leave option to further comply with FFCRA to support employees:

If you have questions or need to apply for Expanded FMLA, please contact Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org.
