UPDATE - Changes to In-Person Employee Density Level- In preparation for 70%

This memo is a follow-up to the Human Resources (HR) memo dated January 18, 2022, which informed employees that effective February 28, 2022 they are expected to return to in-person work at 70% of their work schedule.

Please note that from January 28, 2022 through February 27, 2022, employees are expected to continue following 50% in-person capacity guidelines which have been in place since August 2021. This means 5 out of the 10 days in a two-week work cycle employee must be on campus.

HR urges managers/department heads to plan for the increase in their department’s personnel - effective February 28, 2022 - in accordance with the guidelines specified in the College’s reopening plan.  Managers/department heads are also reminded that, as their department’s business needs dictate, they have the discretion to require their employees to report to work in-person at a higher rate than the University’s mandated minimum of 50 %, from now until February 27, 2022, or 70%, as of February 28, 2022.

The increase to in-person density levels will result in the reduction and (ultimately the elimination as we continue to move fully in-person) of the general reasonable accommodations for reasons other than a health condition as stated in the CUNY’s Reasonable Accommodations and Academic Adjustments policy

For your convenience, please find HR’s memo dated January 3, 2022 regarding the campus access procedures.


As a reminder, full-time remote work options will no longer be permitted (without an approved reasonable accommodation), as employees will be expected to continue to move fully in-person in accordance with departmental business needs. Managers/department heads who will be approving a remote work agreement as part of an employee’s flexible work plan are asked to submit the updated agreements to HR at humanresources@ccny.cuny.edu .  Please write in the subject line, Remote Work Agreement.

Should you have any questions, please email us at humanresources@ccny.cuny.edu .  Thank you.
