    Essential Employees

      In past winters we have been told that certain areas of the University have been telling our members that they are essential employees even on their days off. This is completely not true; you are not essential employees on your schedule days off.

              The contract states “shall be notified in writing at the beginning of each fall   semester. Unless notified otherwise by the University, all such employees are expected to report to work during any official University closedown of a campus or facility.”

       What the language means is that when it is your normal schedule workday and Penn State closes your campus, you are expected to report to work at your normal time. If they close campus on your days off, you do not report to work that day unless the supervisor contacts you at home to report to work. You do not have to stand by the phone and wait for the call. You are not essential during your schedule days off.

          If you have questions, call the office at 814-548-1429.
