President Amy Gutmann recently announced that the period for paid administrative leave for hurricane volunteers has been extended until December 31.
Hurricane Katrina has been one of the most devastating storms to hit the U.S. in recent memory. As rescue and relief efforts go on, Penn wishes to show its continued support for those who want to assist in these efforts. Penn faculty and staff interested in volunteering for organizations involved in official hurricane relief efforts may be granted up to three consecutive weeks (15 consecutive working days) of paid administrative leave.
The guidelines are designed to assist managers; the decision to grant release time is at the sole discretion of the School/Center. The provisions outlined atwww.hr.upenn.edu/emergency/paid_release_hurricane.asp will apply to time away from work up to and including December 31, 2005. Based on facts and circumstances, these provisions may be modified at a future date.
