Policy Statement

Effective Dates:  Sunday, January 2, 2022, through Saturday, March 26, 2022

Applies to: Any employee – whether hourly or salaried, union or nonunion – who is required, as part of their regular ongoing job duties, to either provide direct services to students in isolation or work in a location in which students are isolating.  This is anticipated to cover custodians assigned to residence halls, employees deployed to an isolation space to perform services, Student Affairs employees living in residence halls as a condition of their employment, student UGA's or Grad Resident Fellows, and dining employees assigned to provide meals to isolating students.

Employees who are in-scope for this policy will receive:

Hourly employees:  1.5 times their regular hourly rate of pay for each hour worked in an isolation space.

Salaried employees: a stipend equal to one half of their base monthly rate of pay, prorated for the number of days worked in an isolation space.

Supervisors and managers are responsible for determining what constitutes eligible work and for what duration.


Eligible hourly employees, assigned to an isolation space by their supervisor, should record their eligible hours using the Core Incentive Pay designation in Kronos. Supervisors and managers of salaried employees should work with their Finance Center to process the appropriate stipend for salaried employees in advance of each pay date.
