HANOVER — Dartmouth College will continue to allow some employees to work remotely because of the COVID-19 pandemic, school officials said on Wednesday. While many faculty and other Dartmouth employees are back on campus, an unknown number have been working from home but were expected to return to campus on Monday.
In an email to the Dartmouth community, Interim Provost David Kotz and Executive Vice President Rick Mills said “we have decided not to set a specific date to expect all remote employees to return to on-site work.”
They said supervisors will determine if an employee can continue to work “fully remotely” or in a hybrid model.
COVID-related benefits to expire
MONTPELIER — Pandemic-related provisions that expanded eligibility to unemployment benefits for people directly impacted by COVID-19 are set to expire on Friday, the Vermont Department of Labor said.
The expanded eligibility was for situations including people needing to quarantine because of exposure to the coronavirus, care for a child whose school or childcare center was closed due COVID-19, or care for a family member who had the illness, the department said.
When the expansions expire, Vermonters may only qualify for unemployment benefits under traditional criteria, like being laid off or terminated without cause, officials said.
People who have been filing for unemployment under one of the virus-related provisions will be required to do a weekly work search.
Vermonters may be eligible for workers’ compensation if they have contracted COVID-19 while at work.
