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 weekly 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.

  • 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. 

Details can be found on the On-Campus Testing page.
