If you are seeking an accommodation, as per our Collective Agreement, please note the steps below:
• Member needs to contact , preferably by email, Lori Campion, Senior Manager, Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org
• Lori will send you a letter, “Request for Accommodation”, read and if it applies to you, return with the necessary documentation to Lori Campion.
• Member will need to see their doctor and get a letter with their recommendations.
• Member returns necessary forms to Lori Campion. At this time it will be determined whether you meet the criteria for an accommodation.
• If the Accommodation request is declined the employee has the option to apply for a unpaid leave.
Please note: Accommodations are for high risk groups and are based on the employee’s medical issues – not those of family members, etc.
If a member decides to go on unpaid leave they need to be aware that they will be able to keep their position at their location for up to six (6) months. If the unpaid leave continues after six (6) months, the member will lose their position at their location and go on regular unassigned. Employee benefits will continue for one month once leave has started. Employees have the option of paying into the medical plan to continue their benefits by contacting Hardel Grewall in Payroll.
When EA Subs are called out by ADS (Automatic Dispatch System), this system will try to send out the same sub to the same location – this will hopefully keep movement between locations to a minimum.
All other subs (ie: clerical, operations, etc.) the same protocol will be applied.
With reference to Safety Protocol training for subs – this will be provided to the Sub by the Administration at each individual location.
Calling In Sick & Atrieve:
If you are reporting a sick day, either by entering into Atrieve (before 4:00am) or calling the callboard (604-668-6221 after 4am) you will need to supply a reason (ie: doctor/dentist’s appointments or being sick) This will be especially important as it could effect your sick leave and/or sick leave pay. You will need to specify if you are displaying any COVID symptoms and will be required to call 811 and take the next steps. If you are tested for COVID and it comes back negative, you will still be required to stay at home until your original symptoms have cleared up. You will utilize your sick pay, whether you have tested positive for COVID or not, as you are displaying illness.
Sick pay cannot be utilized as a preventative measure.
