Subject: COVID 19 POLICY
To provide a safe and predictable workplace related to the recent Coronavirus Crisis, Thousand Islands Winery is balancing employee’s wellbeing, government mandates, and business needs.
The following guidelines are being implemented by Thousand Islands Winery immediately. As the situation develops, these guidelines may be changed or modified unexpectedly. Employees should direct any questions they have to their immediate supervisor or HR Director. Management appreciates your understanding during these trying times, since many details, policies, and regulations are being developed and modified daily.
For those not subject to quarantine, isolation orders, or sick:
Until further notice, full-time employees are being scheduled for 32-hour work weeks. Some are working from home, others are still reporting to work, and a few affected by Government mandated closures have even greater reduced hours or may be entirely laid off.
During the crisis, some full-time employees will be scheduled and paid for 32 hours but to offset the reduced hours, they may use any accrued vacation time to obtain a full 40 hours, if they have hours available.
For those subject to quarantine or isolation orders:
As of Mar 19, 2020, COVID 19 is not covered by Disability Insurance or the Paid Family Leave Act.
The information above is correct as of March 20, 2020. However, as the crisis evolves, and policies and regulations change, so will the company’s guidance.
