Our primary goal is to protect the health and financial wellbeing of our employees and our students, including our students who are available for assignments as previously scheduled. Students who can be assigned remote work should continue to receive assignments. Also, if students can be assigned essential duties on campus, students should continue to receive assignments through the end of the current academic semester. However, if a student worker cannot be assigned remote work or essential duties, and that student is available to complete the assignment, then the follow will apply.
As part of Ball State’s Extraordinary Temporary Paid Leave plan, if a student worker is available to work as scheduled but due to COVID-19 related reasons is unable to work remotely or unable to perform essential duties on campus, that student employee will continue to receive his or her pay through his or her regular assignment for the remainder of the current academic semester.
A student utilizing Federal Work Study as part of a financial aid package will also receive his or her pay through his or her regular assignment for the remainder of the current academic semester.
In the event the employee qualifies for any of the new Federal leaves available after April 1, 2020, the University will make available a supplement to the Federal leave amounts to make certain that the employee receives his or her regular base pay through the time period of the designated Federal leave, through June 30, 2020, or the employee’s regular employment period, whichever comes first. These leave programs will coordinate with the Extraordinary Temporary Paid Leave plan, which expires on June 30, 2020.
