Working Remotely

STLCC is identified as an essential service for purposes of facilitating distance learning or performing essential functions, provided that social distancing of six-feet per person is maintained to the greatest extent possible. Recommendations for social distancing are available from St. Louis County, Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization.

Employee Leave

In the spirit of not requiring employees to use regularly accrued sick time or other paid time off, the Board and the College are considering additional, special leave related to COVID-19 at the Board meeting on March 23. The College will update information regarding leave as soon as possible.

The College has designated a limited number of individuals as essential onsite employees – those employees have been notified by their supervisor about when and if they need to report to a physical work location. All other employees should be working from home, and your supervisors will be in touch about specific work assignments and expectations.

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in St. Louis Community College quickly transitioning to a “work from home” environment for most employees. As the College transitions back to full operations on campus, some employees who have been working from home may be able to continue to work effectively from home during this time. However, many employees will be able to work more effectively and efficiently by returning to campus. We have developed the following guidance and best practices for employees and supervisors to follow to ensure that employees working from home (or other remote locations) have a safe and effective work environment. It is important to remember that working from home is not a right and managers have discretion in determining work location requirements for their departments/team. Some College employees will continue to work from home but may also be required to report on-site as needed to fully meet the requirements of their positions. If an employee is unable to perform the duties of their position from home, a return to work on campus will be necessary. This return to campus is possible under current city, county, state and federal guidance. Based on this guidance, the College has established protocols for the safe return to work.
