To support health and safety, University Human Resources has established a set of designations to limit on-site operations.
All Brown faculty, staff, postdocs, graduate students, and non-Brown employees who have been approved to either continue working on campus or return to campus are required to be designated as either Essential: Onsite, Essential: Special or Essential: Limited. University members with these designations are required to review the Covid-19 Workplace Safety Policy, review and acknowledge the Workplace Safety Acknowledgement form, and complete the e-learning training module, Social Distancing and Return to Campus Guidelines.
Any employee designated with Essential-Special or Essential Onsite will have to conduct a daily symptom checker as well as get tested for COVID-19 prior to being on campus. No member of the community will be able to return to campus, or continue to be on campus in the case of personnel already performing on-site essential work, until they have completed and signed an employee acknowledgement.
Managers should work with their department heads and HR Business Partner (HRBP) to ensure individuals have the appropriate designation and complete the acknowledgement and required training. Managers without an HRBP should contact UHR-Compensation at [email protected] for assistance.
