On March 12, 2021, Governor Cuomo signed a new law that allows employees to take up to 4 hours off from work, with pay, to get vaccinated for COVID-19.
Employees must inform their supervisor of their need to take time off as soon as their appointment is scheduled. In Workday, the supervisor will submit the employee's time-off request using the "COVID-19 Leave" code and select "Vaccination" as the time-off reason.
This paid vaccination leave is available as of March 12, 2021.
For more information about scheduling COVID-19 vaccines, please refer to the memo emailed on March 11th.
