  • Student employment serves not only as a chance for professional development, but also provides financial support toward school, housing, and day-to-day expenses. We ask our student workers to please stay in contact with their supervisor to determine if there is work they can do, even remotely, to continue to earn this important experience and income. We understand student assistants are concerned about how the virtual learning environment will impact their work hours and pay, so the following arrangement has been implemented:

    Student Assistant Appointments - Fall 2020/Spring 2021

    Deadline for requisitions- Tuesday, August 18, 2020. New and continuing Student assistants who are budgetarily approved for employment as Student Assistants may be processed with division Vice President approval/signature. This should be based on the essential need for the position as well as available budgeted funds.

  • In order to conform to the shelter-at-home orders from Ventura County and the Governor, telecommuting and working from home remain strongly encouraged when practical until further notice. However, the university remains open and essential employees are required to be on campus to ensure continuity of campus operations. Employees with a telework arrangement must be engaged in tasks related to their daily CSUCI responsibilities. Department heads and managers should be in regular contact with these employees, providing appropriate guidance and engagement. If you have team members that are unable to telecommute, and have a family member, or personally affected by COVID-19, be sure to review the CPAL information above.

    Please review the telecommuting guidelines with your manager and the COVID-19 Temporary Telecommuting Agreement.

  • Employees in Bargaining Unit 2, 5, 7, and 9 (CSUEU) and Bargaining Unit 6 (Teamsters) who continue to come to campus for essential functions will be provided emergency pay per their respective collective bargaining agreements. The emergency pay will be retroactive to Friday, March 20, 2020. We ask supervisors to continue to ensure all work that can be performed remotely/virtually is encouraged and done so.

    Those employees working at home are not eligible for emergency pay. Additionally, employees in bargaining Units 1, 3, 4, 8, and 11, as well as those employees in the Confidential classification and MPP are not eligible for emergency pay.

    In the past few weeks, Governor Newsom began easing guidelines, slowly lifting the previous orders, therefore, the emergency pay provision recently implemented will cease May 31, 2020 at 11:59 pm.
