Will an employee be permitted to return to work if they want to or will they be required to use one of the leave options?
There is a critical need on UC side and OIM – maybe in UC but OIM is more difficult because of the work they do. They are looking at opening up the ability to work in other areas like these.
We have proposed to allow employees to stay within their classification and possibly work within other agencies that are experiencing higher concentration of work at this time. The Commonwealth is committed to looking into this as a possibility and will keep the union informed as they work out the details. We will continue to follow up with them in the near future.
