Vice Chancellor Laurent Heller has approved FP&M’s proposal for lump sum bonus payments to recognize the extraordinary efforts of essential staff working on campus during the initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Risk & Retention Performance Bonus Program is somewhat different from what was originally published in mid-April, as follows:
- Bonuses will be awarded to recognize exceptional performance, increased risk, and/or additional assignments assumed by the employee during the pandemic.
- Bonus amounts will reflect the number of shifts an essential employee worked on campus during the period of March 17 to May 1, 2020, and/or for performance that was above and beyond expectations during the public health crisis, and/or for assuming unplanned or additional activities which are mission critical or needed to maintain coverage during the public health crisis.
- University Staff, Temporary Employees, and Academic Staff are eligible for Risk & Retention bonus payments in this program.
While FP&M received slightly more than half of the available funds in this year’s program, funding is still extremely limited due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the university’s budget and finances. FP&M will have to use some of its own operating funds to supplement the funds provided by campus leadership.
Risk & Retention Performance Bonuses will be awarded as follows:
|Shifts Worked On-site||Payment Amount|
|26 or more||$600|
If you have been selected for a bonus under the Risk & Retention program, you will be notified via an official letter from FP&M Human Resources.
If you have questions about this program, please talk to your supervisor or contact FP&M Human Resources (firstname.lastname@example.org).
