All employees are expected comply with the university’s health strategies including protocols such as wearing face coverings, social/physical distancing, daily symptom monitoring, and staying home when ill to name a few. By now, we know from health officials that failure to adhere to these protocols places our community at great risk.
Managers have an important role in ensuring the safety of their employees and the general community. You can do your part by communicating regularly with your employees about these protocols. Doing so will go a long way to help your team
become accustomed to our new work environment, and promote a cadence of accountability.
Communication and education should be our primary method to get our teams up to speed on these new protocols. But what do you do when become aware that someone on your team is not following the rules? It is important that you respond quickly and appropriately by taking the appropriate steps to address non-compliance situations whether you observe the behavior and/or it may be reported to you.
To help walk you through this process, we have developed the Manager’s Guide for Addressing Non-Compliance During COVID-19. Please take a moment to review.
