Sinclair employees live our motto “Find the Need and Endeavor to Meet It”, and it is fair to say that not in our memories has “meeting the need” been more vital than now as we strive to serve our students while staying smart and safe. Whether you are working on campus or off-site, you have a critical role in guiding our students toward their goals. Click on any of the boxes below to read more about what you need to know if you are returning to campus, plans for keeping you safe and how you can do your part to keep our community well.
Managers are responsible for scheduling office coverage in order to provide quality service to Sinclair students, clients, partners, faculty and staff using a form and worksheet designed by HR to assist them in determining which positions can work remotely during the pandemic crisis. Working remotely does not have to be an exclusive arrangement and can differ amongst employees holding the same position. Office coverage may be provided using a hybrid model where employees work both remotely and in the office to complete their regularly assigned tasks.
If an employee has been directed to return to work face-to-face on campus but seeks permission to work remotely-either entirely or for more days or hours than directed-due to “high risk” or childcare related conditions, they should contact their supervisor. The supervisor will assist the employee in filing a Statement of Inability to Return to Work on Campus located on Forms Central under Human Resources. This statement will be reviewed by the supervisor, dean/director, vice president, and Remote/Alternative Work Request Review Panel. Employees will be notified of possible options after a thorough review.
One of the benefits that Sinclair provides for full-time employees is an employee assistance program (EAP). The EAP consists of a variety of services offered to full-time employees and their household members.
The EAP maintains confidentiality with the employees who use this service.
Part-time employees seeking information on mental health and well-being resources are asked to contact the Human Resources office at 937-512-2514.
