Guidance-for-70-and-over-essential-staff

MEMORANDUM

TO: All NYCSSS Staff

FROM: Nathalia Berger, Director of Human Resources

SUBJECT: GUIDANCE FOR 70 AND OVER ESSENTIAL STAFF

DATE: March 25th, 2020

Governor Cuomo recently announced the “New York State on PAUSE” plan. Under that plan, he recommended that individuals 70 and older stay at home. Individuals with compromised immune systems and those with underlying illnesses should provide medical documentation directly to NYCSSS for review.

In line with these recommendations, NYCSSS strongly encourages you to stop reporting to work sites. If you fall within one of the above-mentioned categories you will continue to be paid during this time and your days away from work will not be charged to your annual or sick leave balances (unless you are taking a sick or annual day). While this is not mandatory, it is highly recommended and advised.

Your health and safety are paramount to NYCSSS and we value your hard work, flexibility, and diligence during these trying times.

Should you have any questions about this matter, please contact humanresources@nycsss.org.
