Meet and Confer Update:

005 & 008 DHA – Return to Work

June 13, 2021

     UPE met with DHA on 7/7/21 regarding their reopening plans.  The Department reiterated their intent to return all teleworkers to the office except those issued Cradle Point Devices or those allowed to telework through the ADA process.  Everyone else on telework must return on July 18, 2021.  UPE challenged why the Department was continuing with this plan despite increasing cases, and the Department stated they were following directives from the Acting County Executive using guidance from the State and Public Health. 

     The Department identified 48 workers that will be allowed to continue telework at this time.  However, this group will be required to go through the ADA process again in order to determine how much longer they will continue to telework.  The Department did not know a timeline to complete ADA assessments on workers. 

     The Department’s plan remains to return to normal operations on August 23, 2021.  Until then, lobby capacity and intakes will continue to be limited.  By August 23, 2021, employment services such as Job Club will begin in person again. 

     The Department plans to initiate a telework rotation process at a later date.  They will be presenting their plan to the Union, and the two sides will begin meeting about this process on July 16, 2021.
