COVID-19 Employee Rights

EMPLOYEE RIGHTS PAID SICK LEAVE AND EXPANDED FAMILY AND MEDICAL LEAVE UNDER THE FAMILIES FIRST CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE ACT banner
As a JCPS full time or permanent part-time employee many options are available to you as we face the Coronavirus.

All employees are able to work remotely as their positions allow, with the exception of some who may have to report to work as necessary or in the case of an emergency.

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or quarantined by a health professional for up to 14 days, you may be eligible for Emergency Covid-19 Days.

If you are unable to work (remotely included) due to your childcare service being closed related to COVID-19, you may be eligible for leave under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. This leave may start with two (2) weeks of unpaid leave with up to ten (10) additional weeks at 2/3 your normal pay.

Please contact the JCPS Leave Center jcps.leavecenter@jefferson.kyschools.us, to ask questions and have a Leave Center Advisor contact you to see which option may be best for you.
