All fall 2020 undergraduate classes are being offered in online and remote environments. Faculty are providing remote, web-based instruction using Blackboard. The Division of Academic Affairs provides tools and resources to support this initiative. Updates to the Remote Teaching and Academic Support site are made regularly.
Nonessential employees are expected to work remotely to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Use the IT Toolkit to find training sessions and online resources for remote work. It is important to remind all employees that FERPA and medical privacy laws continue to guide FIT’s communications and interactions while working off campus.
Human Resources Information
Visit Human Resources’ Communications page and locate your employee group (full-time staff, part-time faculty, administrative employees, etc.) for details on how the pandemic crisis affects your leave reports. If you have specific questions, please submit your inquiry through the HR Solution Center.
Online timesheets are to be submitted as usual; paper timesheets can be emailed to [email protected]. Since the payroll office will be closed until further notice, all checks will be mailed to the HR address on file. Any changes in direct deposits, tax withholdings, and other related payroll forms can also be emailed to [email protected] for processing, as long as they are sent from an FIT email address.
Review the Return to Work Campus Guide for specific guidelines and instructions.
COVID-19 Testing for Employees
In accordance with a SUNY mandate and in partnership with the UCE of FIT, the college requires biweekly coronavirus testing of all campus-based employees. This includes Public Safety, Food Services, Facilities, faculty, and staff.
There are approximately 150 employees currently eligible for testing.
Beginning Friday, Oct. 2, FIT, in partnership with Quest Diagnostics, is testing 50% of its on-campus community members each week; the following week the other 50% is tested. These two groups alternate testing every other week.
- This is a PCR test that is self-administered by the participant by means of a nasal swab.
- Testing will take place weekly in the John E. Reeves Great Hall on campus.
- Appointments are required. Details with appointment times will be sent directly to those needing to test.
