Human Resources


Working @ VCU

Due to the safety protocols required due to COVID-19, things look and feel different as we take necessary steps to protect the well-being of our community. Employees are required to complete the One VCU: Responsible Together spring semester training by Jan. 25, 2021. The course will be available on Jan. 4, 2021. The training reviews public safety measures as well as new information about limiting the spread of COVID-19, mandatory asymptomatic surveillance testing and other operational changes to expect in 2021. An updated manager training is required as well.

Here is what is expected of you:

  1. Monitor your health daily and complete your daily health check.
  2. Wear a face covering or mask in common areas.
  3. Apply physical distance guidelines to all settings.
  4. Clean and disinfect personal and shared spaces before and after use. Cleaning supplies will be available in numerous locations.
  5. Report symptoms associated with COVID-19 to the COVID 19 hotline (phone #)
  6. Comply with asymptomatic surveillance testing.  Starting Jan. 19, asymptomatic surveillance testing is mandatory for residential students, students who attend on-campus classes and employees who work on campus. VCU will contact you by email if and when you are selected to participate. If you are called to participate, you must schedule your test and attend your testing appointment.
  7. Employees who continue to telework will check in with managers regularly and provide ongoing reports/outcomes.
  8. Use leave for any periods with no work. Employees unable to work on-campus or continue working from home must take leave. Once leave balances are depleted, employees may take leave without pay (not to exceed one month).

Follow safety protocols including those regarding face coverings and masks, cleaning and disinfecting, and physical distancing. Employees will receive reminders for daily health monitoring. Managers will be notified after repeated non-compliance. Disciplinary action for employees up to and including termination will be used for a failure to comply with safety expectations.
