SUNY Poly Inclement Weather Notice for Monday December 2 2019
Due to severe weather in the region, all classes at SUNY Poly’s Utica and Albany campuses have been canceled for Monday, December 2, 2019.
Please note, for Utica faculty and staff:
SUNY Poly management is implementing liberal leave, which means the employee, with supervisory approval, who is performing non-immediate non-essential functions, may leave early, and/or take time off whereby the employee will use his or her vacation, holiday, or personal paid time off accruals.
Liberal leave encourages the employee to mitigate his or her own risk in traveling to and from work and is implemented at the discretion of management for exceptional circumstances such as inclement weather or emergencies and only in cases where it is feasible for the employee to take liberal leave based on duties (essential versus non-essential duties). Some employee functions are deemed essential (i.e. security, certain facilities and operational units, maintenance, etc…); therefore, staffing in some areas will be maintained as determined by management. For more information, please see the Essential Employee Policy located at: sunypoly.edu/contact/offices/human-resources/human-resources/policies-procedures
If an employee does not have vacation, holiday, or personal paid time off accruals, management will consult with SUNY Poly Human Resources and make a determination on a case-by-case basis.
Please share this message with your direct reports.
Please note, for Albany faculty and staff:
