Return to Work Plan Announced

Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Catherine Lessnau, assistant director of human resources, shared the following message in an email to Albion College faculty and staff:

Albion College will follow a four-phase Return To Work Plan in order to gradually bring the majority of employees back to campus - the first phases of which began in May 2020. The Return to Work Contingency Planning Team’s goals with this plan are to protect the health of employees, help ensure the well-being of the community, and carefully and deliberately prepare for the fall semester.

Our knowledge and understanding of the COVID-19 virus continues to evolve, and our policies and plans will be updated as appropriate as more information becomes available.

Albion College will phase in the return of employees over time in a coordinated process to ensure appropriate social distancing, availability of PPE (personal protective equipment) and testing capabilities are maintained.

Albion will assess expanded staffing based on mission-critical operations, ability to control and manage specific work environments, and necessity to access on-site resources. These decisions, once approved, will be communicated through your respective supervisor.

Expanded staffing will be closely coordinated to mitigate potential risks and ensure the safety of faculty and staff, as well as the communities we serve.
