Docket Entries Since Last Update
NOTE: This court's RSS feed does not list MOTION entries, so Bloomberg Law cannot detect them and thus they will not be listed here. However, motions will be included if you update the docket.
Editor's Note: This sample communication provides information to employees who will be expected to continue to work from home indefinitely. An update about a future return to the office or other worksite should include information about worksite reopening and can include communications about other topics of heightened interest to employees in traditionally office-based roles as needed. Review the Sample Communication to Temporarily Remote Employees and the Sample Update for Continued Long-Term Remote Work. To review state-specific laws and regulations on workplace pandemic requirements, see State L&E Developments.
As we begin the month, Covid-19 remains a threat in many areas, leading us to continue to ask that all employees work from home, including employees based outside our headquarters’ location.
Nearly all local school districts have decided to begin the school year with remote learning. We understand this development generates concern for parents and caregivers, particularly in school districts that expect to be operating long-term via distance learning models.
Rest assured, we will continue to offer flexibility for parents while schools remain operating remotely—even after we begin the process of reopening our offices. We also understand that you may need flexibility in your schedule. If you have a concern, I encourage you to work with your manager in the coming weeks to discuss what can be done to balance your personal situation and the needs of the business once the school year begins. Of course, those of you who do not have dependents should also speak with your manager regarding any concerns with your schedule or logistics, as well.
This summer, we've been hard at work making our facilities as safe as possible for when we can safely return to the office. As part of our ongoing preparations, we're implementing a Clean Desk Policy. This will require that all items—with the exception of your computer, telephone, and any connected components (e.g., mouse, keyboard, headset)—be removed from your desk each day so the area can be disinfected properly. Thanks to the many employees who did this before we left the office in March. For those of you who were unable to do so, the facilities department will remove all items and place them either in a bag on your chair or in a box under your desk. This effort is currently under way so we can do a thorough deep clean of all workspaces.
In closing, many of you have asked what steps we will take when things stabilize in the area. When we believe it is safe to do so, our first step will likely be to make our offices available to employees who would prefer to work there. We're not there yet, and we'll let you know when we can offer this option.
Despite the many challenges we're facing while working remotely, we're delivering for our customers. So, I want to thank you for your continued focus and hard work.
I hope that you all find some time to take a break and recharge this month.
