Due to the Stay Home executive order issued by Vermont Gov. Phil Scott, Norwich University employees are required to remain at home unless they have been designated in writing by Human Resources as an “essential employee” and have been asked to work on campus by their supervisor.
Some employees are able to perform their regular work duties remotely from home and receive their normal pay. However, some employees must use PAID ADMIN LEAVE because:
- They are unable to perform their work from home
- They are caring for children who are at home due to school or day care closure
- They are experiencing illness, quarantine, or self-isolation due to the COVID-19 virus
- They or a member of their household are immunosuppressed
Based upon recent guidance from Vermont Department of Health officials, President Schneider has added another reason.
