While many Sinclair employees share general concerns or fears related to COVID-19 exposure, some may have medical conditions placing them at a higher risk and making us more vulnerable to the COVID-19 virus. Safety protocols have been put in place to mitigate these concerns (mask wearing, social distancing, etc.), and Sinclair employees are required to practice these protocols. However, those with a medical condition(s) that fall within the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), or those unable to obtain childcare, may complete the Inability to Return to Work form located under Human Resources on Forms Central and provide it to their respective supervisors.
The objective of this form is to encourage an interactive communication process between supervisors and employees regarding COVID-19. The process ensures:
If a resolution to determining alternative work arrangements are unable to be made, such as an alternative work schedule, a remote work assignment, or other alternative, the form will be escalated through various levels of review until a final determination is made. Please note this form is to only be used by those individuals who have a condition identified by the CDC.
For additional information regarding Sinclair workplace policies and procedures as they relate to COVID-19, please go the Human Resources webpage on My.Sinclair, COVID-19 Employee Information. On this page you will find information related to Emergency Leave, Emergency Pay, COVID-19 Legislation, Supervisor Resources, and more.
