Employee Emergency Paid Leave (EEPL)
In response to the current pandemic, Irving ISD will continue to maintain proper and safe operations while also providing some form of relief to all of our employees. Although the administration will not provide coverage under all previous categories of relief covered through the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), which expired December 31, 2020; the administration will ensure that employees, who did not use FFCRA leave prior to December 31, in the following categories, continue to receive relief:
(1) those who contract COVID-19, and
(2) those who are determined to be a close contact to a positive individual based on CDC guidelines.
Leave benefits under the Irving ISD Employee Emergency Paid Leave (EEPL) apply for the limited time period of January 1, 2021, to June 30, 2021 for employees that have not been awarded paid leave under FFCRA (April 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020).
The amount of paid leave an employee receives may vary depending on the reason leave is taken, date of onset of symptoms (if applicable), and CDC guidelines. Your HR case manager will inform you of the dates for which you qualify prior to your in-person return to work date.
