Employee FAQ's

These revised FAQs contain important information regarding safety and your right to additional time off, including Emergency Paid Sick Leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). While the FFCRA expired at the end of 2020, the City is voluntarily extending some aspects of the FFCRA through the City’s Extended Program (see FAQ #13).

Please review every FAQ (but particularly FAQs #29 - #33, because they contain important information on the City’s obligations regarding workplace exclusion if you are exposed to or test positive for COVID-19. If you have questions, please contact your supervisor or manager or Departmental HR Single Point of Contact (SPOC).

As a reminder, is it essential that every employee follow the City’s Face Covering Memorandum, the safety protocols detailed in these FAQs, and the Alameda County Health Officer’s Order requiring members of the public and workers to wear face coverings.
