Update: August 31, 2021, 8:00 a.m.
We strongly encourage employees to voluntarily provide proof of vaccination to the Human Resource Management Office. As we continue to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, having employees’ voluntary vaccination information is key to our efforts. You can upload your information or contact the Human Resource Management Office at 878-3042 to schedule an appointment to provide your documentation in person.
Governor Cuomo signed legislation on March 12, 2021, granting public and private employees time off to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. Under this new law, employees are granted up to four hours of excused leave per injection. This time will not be charged against any other leave the employee has earned or accrued.
Use of the vaccination leave should be requested in advance and approved by your supervisor. While up to four hours of leave with pay is available for COVID-19 vaccination leave, not every employee’s situation will require the full four hours’ allotted time.
The SUNY Time and Attendance System has been updated to provide a COVID-19 vaccine drop-down option in the non-chargeable category. If you have questions about recording the non-chargeable leave, please contact Al Galone, manager of payroll, 878-4124 (for CSEA); or Carey Seneca, interim manager of recruitment and classification, 878-3042 (for UUP).
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, and as recommendations from federal, state, and local entities change, Buffalo State College will adjust its health and safety guidelines accordingly.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
