To all Valued Town of North Hempstead Employees,
We wish to inform you that Supervisor Bosworth has directed that the emergency provisions regarding compensation, which were put in place on March 16th and set to expire on March 30th, have been extended until April 20th. A copy of the March 16th email is provided below this email. Please be aware that as the circumstances concerning the coronavirus pandemic evolve, the April 20th date is subject to change.
In most instances, employees are being directed not to come in to work! Only designated essential employees are authorized to come in to work. If you are not sure whether you should be coming in or working from home, please contact your department head for clarification.
Please be aware that no checks/pay stubs are being distributed from Town Hall. Employees on direct deposit will be receiving their pay electronically. Those employees not only direct deposit will have their checks mailed to them. Do not come by Town Hall to pick up checks!
The Town will also be extending the open enrollment period for medical/dental/vision benefits through the end of April. If any employees wish to make any changes please email me and Michele Amato.
In addition, we know how hard it is dealing with this health emergency. While the virus presents a direct medical risk, staying home and dealing with this issue also presents possible physical and emotional concerns. Please see the attached memo provided by our EAP LECSA and the American Red Cross which deals with these issues specifically and offers sound advice on how to cope during these difficult times.
Department Heads: Please make sure all of your employees are aware of this staffing directive, especially those who do not have email access. Use whatever methods are available to contact each of your employees to check in and give them this valuable information.
We continue to ask, for the health and safety of you and your families, that you practice situational awareness. Follow CDC and NYS Health Department recommendations on hygiene and social distancing. We want all of our employees to remain healthy during this global emergency. Please remember that outdoor exercise must be a solitary recreational activity as we must keep space between ourselves and others. Nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of you and your loved ones.
Stay healthy and safe,
Bob Weitzner- Commissioner of HR
Thomas McDonough- CSEA Union President
