During this challenging transitional period, staff plays a critical role in supporting the campus community. We are so grateful for the incredible work of our employees, especially during these difficult times. We also appreciate your continued understanding and flexibility.

If you work on campus and are not involved in clinical care, you are required to take UCLA’s return-to-work training, which is hosted on the UC Learning Center (campus LMS). Navigate to http://lms.ucla.edu/. Log in using SSO and search for training “COVID-19 Pandemic: Returning to Work on Campus.”
For policy-covered staff employees, UC President Janet Napolitano recently approved a temporary change in UC’s Absence from Work policy to provide additional relief for parents balancing work and child care responsibilities. Through December 31, 2020, eligible staff may use their accrued sick leave if they are unable to work or telework because their children are not able to physically attend their school or place of care due to COVID-19 precautions. With the UC President’s approval in effect, granting the use of accrued sick leave for these purposes will not be considered an exception to the Absence from Work policy.
