As you may be aware, a number of organizations are planning a day of protest activities on Monday, May 1, 2006 related to immigration reform legislation pending in the U.S. Congress. Members of your staff may express the intention to participate in activities on May 1st to voice their support or opposition on these issues. Because there may be a potential impact on your activities, we are sharing the following guidelines for managers and supervisors to address employee questions and leave requests.
Vacation requests for May 1 should be honored where operational considerations permit. Employees should be informed that, in light of the anticipated day of activity, those who call in sick on May 1 may be asked to submit a note from a healthcare practitioner; and employees who fail to come to work without obtaining prior approval will be deemed absent without permission and may not receive pay for hours scheduled to work.
If you have questions, please contact Employee Relations and Policy Development at (858) 534-4115.
