Update on work arrangements (28 April 2020)
28 Apr 2020
Following the HKSAR Government’s announcement that public services will be resumed from 4 May onwards, the University has decided that normal office operations will also proceed in a safe and orderly manner with effect from 4 May (Monday).
1. All academic and non-academic departments/offices/units will operate daily during normal office hours, i.e. from 9:00 am to 5:36 pm, Monday to Friday, with a one-hour lunch break.
2. Heads of academic and non-academic departments/offices/units should arrange for AT LEAST half of their staff to come to the office daily. They may exercise their discretion in making work arrangements according to work duties of their units as appropriate, including the implementation of duty rosters, flexible or staggered working hours, and in consideration of personal circumstances of individual colleagues.
Colleagues who work on campus are strongly advised to wear a surgical mask and observe the latest preventive measures recommended by the University’s Health, Safety and Environment Committee (please refer to the email dated 22 April issued by the Committee).
Colleagues who work from home should observe the guidelines provided by HRO and ITSC (please refer to the email issued by the Office of the President dated 4 February).
Special work arrangements are reviewed regularly. The University will return to its normal schedule (i.e. all staff members are required to attend the office during their normal working hours) when conditions permit, and colleagues will be given reasonable prior notice.
