How will police officers be compensated during the period of episodic telework?

March 25, 2020

Because UMB is open and the majority of employees are continuing to report for work, University Police will continue to report for duty and will receive their regular pay (including any applicable overtime or on-call pay) as spelled out in existing policies and applicable collective bargaining agreements.

During this transitional and uncertain time, UMB is working to minimize the financial impact of COVID-19-related absences on our employees. University Police are eligible for the various leave categories that have been made available by the University System of Maryland (USM). For example, if a police officer needs to take leave to care for a dependent child during a COVID-19-related school closure, they will be eligible to use sick leave for that absence. Similarly, USM has relaxed the requirements of certain leave categories. University Police with questions about leave should contact Human Resources.
